Jim Crane flexes!

We'll have some delayed reaction to the news that the Astros would be slated for the American League should a wild realignment (less "realignment" and more "blowing up") happen.

Regardless (with a captip to Street and SnS), Jim Crane isn't having it, according to an ownership group source:

"You don't spend $680 million on something and have a third-party come in an dictate new terms after the agreement's been ironed out. Even Major League Baseball. These are extremely complicated deals. A lot of work goes into them. They are not something you can just go in and change in that significant of a manner."

Hell, and yes.
