As of now, the race to buy the Astros is a three horse race

Fox 26's Mark Berman has an update on the sale of the Astros, saying that Jim Crane wants it so bad he can taste it.

"It's no surprise that Jim Crane is trying to put together a deal to buy the Astros. He is one of three people who are trying real hard to buy the team and there are another four or five waiting in the wings."

"Realtor" Steve Greenberg:
"We view Jim Crane as a very creditable, potential buyer. He has all the credentials to be a terrific owner. He's local. He's been a successful businessman with deep roots in the community."

No word on the other buyers (which Berman lists as possibly numbering seven or eight)
