The Astros have not seen an owner other than Drayton McLane in 18 years. And, though talks and whispers have emerged in the media, nothing serious has been discussed thus far.
When asked about the sale, McLane stated the following:
“Anybody who wants to talk about the team, we sit and listen to them, then we talk it over within the family”
McLane was close to selling the Astros in January, but nothing emerged from the New York based investment firm. It has been reported that McLane is seeking nothing less than $600M.
