Oh man. Jim Crane dropped the hammer on Drayton in a Q&A with the Chronicle today.
Go read the interview. Go ahead. I'll wait. Among the things Crane said:
*He was surprised at how terrible the farm system was when he took over.
*Drayton killed the team in 2007 by not signing anyone before the 5th Round.
*He's staying out of Luhnow and Reid Ryan's way.
*"The buck stops with" Crane on the tv deal, but a deal will get done.
