HE'S NO DOCTOR DOOM! MCLANE MAKES PRESENCE AT GROUNDBREAKING

          Astros Owner Drayton McLane Jr. attended yesterday's
     groundbreaking ceremony for Houston's new downtown ballpark,
     "ending two days of speculation" that he might not show up
     "since he has not completed a letter of agreement" for a
     long-term lease with the Harris County-Houston Sports
     Authority, according to John Williams of the HOUSTON
     CHRONICLE.  McLane said that the "biggest holdup" in talks is
     how to keep the projects's cost under the "promised" $250M
     cost, but added that he "expects" to have the negotiations
     completed "early next week" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 10/31).
