Heyman on potential sale: It's more serious than Drayton lets on

Jon Heyman's new column talks mostly about Mark McGwire, but has a note on the potential sale of the Astros:

Astros owner Drayton McLane did sign a letter of intent to sell the Astros to a group headed by former U.S. Olympic Committee chairman Harvey Schiller and Mark Isaacson, as Houston TV station Fox 26 reported. While McLane has been quoted as saying there's "less than a 50-50 chance'' that a deal will occur for "various reasons,'' this is a serious group.
