Jon Paul Morosi has a piece up for Fox Sports in which he asks, "Would new Astros owner veto Pence deal?" - referring to Jim Crane.
The answer, given four paragraphs later, is, "No."
While Wade is technically reporting to McLane, he has kept Crane informed of his trade conversations – including the talks that led to Jeff Keppinger being dealt to San Francisco earlier this week. And if Wade reaches agreement on a deal involving Pence that makes good baseball sense, the source said that Crane would likely permit it.
Come on, man.
