"We didn't come out here to play tiddlywinks, son."
I could see McLane agreeing to a sale by the All-Star break, but I can't see the deal being approved by MLB by then.Taking McLane at his word last week or the week before, the approval processes haven't even started yet. Then there's all of the issues surrounding Jim Crane: he's not popular with the Commissioner's Office, his bid for the Astros is rumored to be heavily leveraged (i.e., too much debt), and Crane's personal and business lives could toss up additional red flags. (That Houston Press article, "Transferring Assets," is ugly, ugly, ugly.)
