Hardball Talk read the judge's decision regarding the sale of the Rangers last night, and decides maybe it's not as bad as it seems.
But while my initial reaction was a bit overheated, it would probably be wrong to swing the pendulum too far back the other way as well. This decision, while not as devastating as initial reports first made it seem, does occasion delay and at least a possibility that more bumps could form in the road ahead. After all, if you give lawyers enough time to talk about something, they're likely to come up with seven problems no one ever considered in the first place. And of course delay and uncertainly was exactly what the team's bankruptcy filing was designed to avoid in the first place.
