Ringolsby: If Drayton goes, so goes Tal

Tracy Ringolsby has a column up on Fox Sports where, for the first four sentences, he writes like Ernest Hemingway (8.25 words/sentence). But scroll down far enough, and he addresses the impending sale of the Astros.

On October 1, 2009 Ringolsby mentioned in a Fox Sports column that the Astros were for sale.

He addresses that:
Houston owner Drayton McLane has a buyer, Jim Crane, which is interesting given the strong protests that came out of the Astros' front office when it was mentioned here last season that the Astros were for sale.

That's true. AC even apologized for the mockery.

But here's an interesting note:
Talk in Houston is that former NBA Houston Rockets president George Postolos will assume a similar role with the Astros, replacing longtime baseball exec Tal Smith.

Now THAT'S something.
