Drayton addresses the For Sale sign on the front of Minute Maid Park

Alyson Footer is tweeting (here, and here) Drayton's address to the Lions Club about selling the team. Here's the quote, in its entirety:

"I take every phone call. A group of investors from NY who I did not know called me and asked if they raised a lot of money, would I consider selling the team to them." I said "you better raise A LOT." (Drayton) reiterates he's not actively interested in selling. Says his family would be against it. Adds that the media reports are "way overblown."

Overblown? Media reports? Get out...

Still, there are 11 days left for the prospective ownership group to put together the $gajillion to buy the Astros.
