The Hunt For Roy's October: June 19

Daily round-up of news and rumors surrounding the impending departure of Bulldozer Roy.

Nick Cafardo:
Rangers president Nolan Ryan confirmed the team’s interest in the veteran Astros rigthander. But some in the Houston organization are skeptical that Astros owner Drayton McLane would deal with the other Texas team.

Drayton's got something of a PR problem here. Nobody thinks he's not the one calling the shots, and no matter how hard he backs off the position that he's making decisions, or no matter how often he may be out of the spotlight, Drayton will always be seen as the one screwing up the Astros. Maybe you'll feel sorry for him, but probably not.
