Biz of Baseball on the impending sale

Maury Brown has a good take on what has happened since 2008 and last Friday, when it was reported that Jim Crane could be the next owner of the Astros.

Your money quote:
Maybe time healed the wounds, but a betting man would say it’s about Drayton wishing to get out of the baseball business, and having the value of the club increase due to not only the Rangers auction, but the capacity to leverage being part owner in a regional sports network, the newly formed CSN Houston.
