Drayton slams his fist on the table

Drayton insists that he has not given any thought to a Plan B, should Crane not be approved. Why? Because Crane is going to be approved.

Drayton, staring at Selig without blinking:
“This is going to work. Jim Crane and his group – he has a wide variety of Houston people. If you look at a lot of franchises that have been sold in the last few years, a lot of investors have been from out of town. Almost every one of these investors live in Houston. They’re very, very prominent, highly successful people. It’s for those reasons that this will succeed."

He then yelled, "NOWGIVEMEMYMONEY!" and ran out of the room.

Drayton is starting to sound delusional. Who cares that Crane and his partners are from Houston? Attanasio (Los Angeles) owning the Brewers has worked out fine. Sternberg (NYC) owning the Rays has worked out fine. Ditto for many other deals. The problem is when debt-laden buyers like Crane come in and try to buy a team with no financial breathing room.
