KPRC Sports Director Randy McIlvoy tweeted out:
Reported last night. In intw, Drayton told me, w/Dodgers Bankruptcy, astros sale now 2-3 weeks away.
If the latter time frame is true, this puts the sale of the Astros to within a week of the trade deadline. Of course, Crane can likely approve decisions, and I doubt McLane would stand in the way of any agreement on a trade between Wade and Crane. But still, Frank McCourt is screwing things up (not that this is a news flash).
