How Much Longer Does Jim Crane Have To Wait?

Jim Crane has wanted to become the Astros' owner for a long time now, and he's having trouble understanding why it still hasn't been completed yet. Crane is getting upset that it's taking this long, and he's frustrated that some of his personal matters from the past are being reported in the media. He spoke in a recent Chronicle interview and had this to say:

"When you go to the personal side, it's not a business deal anymore, and that's what offended me."

I think Crane has every right to be upset that a deal hasn't been reached, and I'm beginning to wonder if he's eventually going to become the next Astros' owner or not. He feels that he might have to accept a potential move to the American League in order to finalize this process, but that's something he needs to look into with great detail.

Even with all of the news about his controversial past, Crane has been able to remain somewhat positive throughout the ordeal even though he's grown impatient.

"We've worked very hard to own a team. We think we've put a very good proposal in place and a very good set of owners, and we'll do a very good job with the team, given the chance. And we want to do what's best for baseball."
