Well, had I claimed any such thing you might have a point. Perhaps Ryan shouldn't have made such explicit remarks before he had a clue what his contacts would yield. However good a try he gave it this offseason, results matter. Especially given the current payroll.
You still, along with everyone else, have no clue what contacts Ryan had with other free agents and the discussions or offers made. I am sure that you realize by now not everything goes as you would like. You can't make people like you, you can't make people work for you.
