Astros Ask For CSN Houston Bankruptcy Dismissal, Claiming "Bad Faith" By Comcast
Published October 8, 2013
CHEERING FOR SOLVENCY: In San Antonio, W. Scott Bailey writes, "If you are a baseball fan, now is a good time to root for Comcast SportsNet Houston to pick itself up by the bootstraps and avoid an economic dismantling." The Astros and Rangers "compete for television exposure" in San Antonio. However, if CSN Houston "goes under," the city "could get another heavy dose of Astros games." Bailey: "If you love baseball and despise an owner who is clearly in it for the money, fans be damned, then you have to cross those fingers and toes and pray that [Astros Owner Jim] Crane doesn't get out of the CSN Houston deal, and that he doesn't find a way to knock Texas' better baseball team off of San Antonio TV" (SAN ANTONIO BUSINESS JOURNAL, 10/4 issue).
