Austin Sports Editor Unloads on Astros

Kirk Bohls of the Austin American Statesman writes:

Drayton McLane was doing his usual glad-handing around the Astros
clubhouse before Sunday's series wrapup with the Yankees, going from
locker to locker and spreading good cheer.

In between, he told a visitor he would be the keynote speaker at a meeting
of state sports editors in town this week.
When the Astros owner was asked the topic of his address, McLane smiled rather sheepishly and said he will talk about what it takes to be a champion.

We're assuming he's using a ghost-writer, because this franchise has never won anything more than a NL pennant under his ownership or anyone else's. Maybe he'll ring up someone in the Steinbrenner family tree for some direction.

Of course, sometimes I think he has a personal grudge against the 'stros.  I recall back in June of '05 when he was extolling the success of the Rangers and was ready to leave the Astros for dead, saying that the only way to salvage their season was to trade Roger Clemens.
