Jim Crane to be approved in mid-November

We’ve heard so much back-and-forth on whether or not Jim Crane is going to be approved as the owner of the Astros and when that it’s hard to know what to believe anymore. But when Peter Gammons says it all matter-of-factly like this, it rings true:

Houston ownership change expected to go through in mid-November, w/ AL move.

Oh, man. So that AL move is really gonna happen, huh? Bad news for Theo Epstein and the Cubs, whose efforts to win the NL Central will be that much harder without the Astros to kick around anymore.
