In an updated blog post by the Dallas Morning-News' Evan Grant, Houston businessman Jim Crane reportedly has a bid in for the Rangers around $530 million, allegedly the best bid so far - better than the Dennis Gilbert bid or the Ryan/Greenberg bid.
But there's a snag. White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf has already shown support Gilbert. And:
Astros owner Drayton McLane is not a fan of Crane's.
Can't imagine why. I'd still like to learn the circumstances of the handshake deal that Crane backed out of. Allegedly.
