Drayton McLane’s sale of the Astros to a group led by Houston businessman Jim Crane seems to be struggling to gain the approval of Major League Baseball. Several media outlets are reporting that the deal is in danger of falling apart. Personally, I think Crane is not the right man for the job. Bud Selig and a number of MLB owners seem to share that sentiment. If you are not familiar with Crane and his somewhat checkered past, this article published by Forbes Magazine does a good job of chronicling his shady business practices.

About the Author
The senior member of the CTH staff (in more ways than one) I have been rooting for the Astros since long before any members of the current roster were born. My favorite players through the years include Bob Watson, Glenn Davis, Steve Finley, Mike Hampton, and Roy Oswalt. Even though the results on the field have been poor for for the last few seasons, I still enjoy following and writing about the team. I'm keeping hope alive that things are going to get much better soon.
