Jim Crane, meet microscope; microscope, meet Jim Crane

The Biz of Baseball has a hard-hitting article questioning why it's taking as long as it is to sell the Astros to Jim Crane.

Brown links to an unflattering 2000 Houston Chronicle article:

Eagle President Jim Crane told his subordinates not to hire blacks because "once you hire blacks, you can never fire them." On other occasions, Crane explained the reason he wanted to keep blacks out of the company was that his top managers are bigoted and they would mistreat the minorities, "giving them no choice but to sue Eagle."
