Selig wants Rangers sale done but no action on that front
There were no dramatic public announcements concerning the Rangers at the owners meetings in New York.
Major League Baseball apparently has not seized control of the Rangers. The creditors of Hicks Sports Group have not approved the sale. Chuck Greenberg’s group is not yet in control.
All that happened publicly was Commissioner Bud Selig reiterated the need to get the sale completed as quickly as possible.
“I think everyone knows how I feel about that,” Selig said. “I told the owners today and people yesterday — Nolan Ryan [the team's president] and I have already spoken this morning — that that needs to be completed as expeditiously as possible. That’s underscoring, underlying expeditiously. I’m concerned about the length of time it’s taken. I’m concerned for the franchise, for their fans.”
