Drayton fibs to local PR outlet, MLB gets the story instead

THE BIG SPORTS NEWS IN RECENT DAYS is that Drayton McLane recently nearly sold the Astros. The Chron's Drayton PR (er, baseball) section didn't break that big story, as John Royal notes:

Oh, and EPIC FAIL on part of the Chron. This story was broken by MLB.com which mentioned that Crane's bid for the Rangers was in doubt because MLB didn't trust him after he backed out of the deal with Drayton last year. Maybe if the Chron wouldn't have dumped all of those reporters earlier this year, they might have been able to get this story.

Probably not. The sports section prefers to play cheerleader and cozy up to its favorite sources, preferences that seem unrelated to manpower issues.
