Zephyrs owner has talked with Houston Astros about selling the franchise and relocation | NOLA.com
I enjoy going to couple of games a year. Could we soon be losing them?New Orleans Zephyrs owner Don Beaver has had some discussions about the sale and relocation of the Triple-AAA franchise to Houston Astros owner Jim Crane, Zephyrs general manager Mike Schline confirmed to Nola.com on Monday morning.
But reports that the deal is done or close seem premature at this point. Schline, however, left the door open that the franchise that has been in New Orleans since 1993 could soon be gone.
“I spoke with Mr. Beaver this morning and he informed me that that group has shown some interest but they have had just very very preliminary discussions regarding any such thing,” Schline said. “It’s in an extremely preliminary stage and it’s nothing that would affect 2013 or for that matter the 2014 season. That’s all I know about it.
