Craig Calcaterra: Crane's EEOC thing isn't that big of a speedbump

Hardball Talk's Craig Calcaterra responds to Richard Sandomir's report today about MLB getting the jimmy legs over Crane's EEOC issue:

I have no idea about the merits of the actual discrimination claims, but I think this is much ado about nothing as far as Crane’s approval in the ownership group goes. Drayton McLane is a good buddy of Bud Selig’s. If Selig felt like there was going to be any kind of a problem here, he would have let McLane know about it a long time ago so as not to put him in a tough spot.

Excellent point.
