Ed Wade's extension tied to impending sale?

Jon Heyman's Daily Scoop has an out-loud question regarding Ed Wade's extension:

Maybe I'm being cynical, but I'm wondering if GM Ed Wade's two-year extension through 2012 is a clue that the Astros may be about to sell. It might be Drayton McLane's gift to Wade for being a good soldier (as opposed to a good GM) right before McLane unloads the team (and Wade). McLane has been in talks about selling the team to Harvey Schiller and Marc Isaacson.

What do you think?
