Statement from Harvey Schiller

McTaggart's article on the group in talks to purchase the Astros is up, and we get a statement from Schiller, through spokesman Joe Favorito:

"Dr. Schiller has known Drayton McLane a number of years, and he has nothing but the utmost respect for what he's done with the Astros and the Houston community. With regards to negotiations of a sale or a potential sale, it's not appropriate for us to comment."

The comments on the team being moved don't really concern me. Even though Drayton did threaten to move the Astros to northern Virginia, I'm guessing (and only guessing) that if Drayton did sell the team, it would be contingent to the team staying in Houston. But I could be way off.
