It looks like the Astros are winning in the courtroom this week. Jim Crane and company are playing hardball and Judge Isgur seems to be agreeing with their line of thinking.
David Barron of The Chronicle spent more than 12 hours at the proceedings on Monday and was back in the courtroom again today. Here are a few of his tweets that seem to suggest that the Astros are making some serious headway.
It looks like the Astros have loaded the bases. Now it’s up to Jim Crane and company to drive ’em in. It will still be hard to sell a lousy (Astros) product for a premium price so I don’t know how much this changes things. And this probably isn’t exactly good news for Rockets fans that don’t get CSN.
Stay tuned. I’m sure there will be plenty more to come.
