We've been keeping up a little bit with the sale of the Texas Rangers lately, and one thing we noted was the involvement of Houston businessman Jim Crane.
Well. T.R. Sullivan's newest article says that Crane has the highest bid for the Rangers.
And about that handshake agreement. When was that?
Crane's candicacy appeared to be in doubt because of a handshake agreement to buy the Astros in the fall of 2008 that fell apart in the final hour, and that seemed to cast doubt among Major League officials if he would ultimately gain approval to buy the Rangers. But that could be a moot point if he is deemed the highest bidder in this situation.
