We figured he was gearing up for retirement, actually for several years now. Ryan has an office in SD. He talks to Schmoltz alot, because they own a tree farm (for logging, we think) somewhere. He told us that he newly owns part of a coffee importer. He buys and sells land all the time. Ryan still co-owns a clothing line. He could stop baseball and be just as or more busy than he is now.
Plus, his charity organization.
I dont think any team is gonna wanna pay him what he wants.
He has no upside. I predict this is it...
