SURPRISE, Ariz. -- The Rangers players aren't shocked by anything anymore, but they were a bit surprised to hear that Chuck Greenberg is relinquishing his post as CEO and managing general partner.

But players vowed that it wouldn't impact them.

"Chuck was a great guy the time I talked to him," second baseman Ian Kinsler said. "Other than that, there's really nothing to say I guess. It seemed like he had good ideas. I don't know exactly what happened. It doesn't effect the club in the locker room or on the field. So we're not going to worry about it. I hope Chuck has success wherever he goes."

David Murphy said he wasn't aware of anything until he was asked about it by the media today.

"Things like this aren't going to effect us on the field," Murphy said. "I don't know details, but the time that Chuck was here, he was an awesome guy. He seemed like he was going to steer the franchise in the right direction. We'll miss him, but in this profession, whether it's the front office or ownership or players, it's a constant revolving door. We're used to people coming and going."
