Jim Crane gonna get his green one way or another

There will be a hearing today regarding the Involuntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy of CSN Houston, and Crane says "something doesn't add up."

That "something" is mainly why a market like Houston can't get the baseball and basketball teams on a regular tier of cable packaging.

It continues to puzzle me why this market can't get a deal done when you look at things that happened in Los Angeles (with the Dodgers-Time Warner Cable network agreement) and some of the press on Philadelphia signing a $180 million rights deal with Comcast, and we can't get a deal done in the fifties here and make the network viable.
