There’s a good article by Zachary Levine over at the Houston Chronicle today about the sale of the Houston Astros.
The short version: Unlike the sale of the Cubs, the sale of the Houston Astros doesn’t figure to be a protracted affair. Unlike the sale of the Rangers, it doesn’t figure to be complicated and acrimonious. Unlike the sale of the Dodgers, it doesn’t figure to involve a couple of vain, deluded greenhorns who have no idea what they’re doing.
All of which makes bloggers like me cry. It’s probably good for the Astros and their fans, though.
