I hoe this goes better than the succession plan in HBO’s series, Succession. 
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

What did not happen was an executive search that yielded Jared Crane as the best candidate by pure coincidence.

We don't really know if a search happened or not.

So Crane himself agrees with me. His son got the job because he is his son. Again, it doesn't imply nefarious motive, he is preparing a succession plan for the family to continue ownership of the team. If Jared is good at it, it bodes well for the team's future.

What did not happen was an executive search that yielded Jared Crane as the best candidate by pure coincidence. I hope he is good at the job because he probably won't be replaced if he isn't.
His son got the job because presumably he will be the owner one day. Better he get involved in the business now so he can get the experience and be a good owner if and when that day comes. Let's not pretend this is unique, every owner of every professional sports team has their kids in high positions. It makes sense, if you were Crane and your son wanted to "join the family business" he would be hired the next day.

I've come around to this conclusion as well.

It was a comment on their genes not their capabilities.

Was not talking about what you said. Talking about others.

He is on a mission. Let him roll and hit the ignore button.

Crane said he was hired to set it up for family succession, why would he lie? Do you think if Jared was the result of an executive search that they wouldn't say so?

Again, I'm asserting nothing nefarious. If Crane Sr. wants to pass control of the team to his son it make sense to get him involved now. However, I see that Jared works for his father and probably always has, so I doubt he has "made his own way" in the world. However, if he is good at the job it could benefit us fans for decades.
He breezed him, one more time!

Exactly. Reid Ryan certainly benefitted from having a famous dad. However, as I understand it, he was the driving force behind the Hooks success and has done what appears to be a great job for the Astros. Jim Crane won't suffer fools for long, so if his son doesn't work out, I bet that he won't hesitate to take nexcessary steps to solve the problem.

JJ Gotsch ran the Hooks, not Reid. JJ was Reid’s roommate at TCU, I think.

My understanding is that crane the younger is involved with a lot of Crane the senior’s businesses with the obvious intent of passing the torch.

And I join the chorus of many who chuckle at the indignation about nepotism in defense of Reid Ryan. 
"Holy shit, Mozart. Get me off this fucking thing."

Yep, me too. Sometimes righteous indignation is not righteous at all.

It's a closely held private business. Who cares who the owners choose to run it?

My only concern is as a consumer who wants to spend my money on a competitive team (baseball side) and a pleasurable fan experience (operations side).

Crane can hire his son, his masseuse, his parrot, etc.

Exactly. The outrage here is comical.

Even more comical (regarding Nolan) are the Rangers fans clamoring to, "bring him back!"

As long as it isn't Correa's masseuse.

Nolan  Ryan is a Ranger.  He will always be a Ranger.  He sold his Astros...ness...years ago.  Fuck him.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

The groveling of Ryan's schlong knows no bounds in DFW. This idiot bastard is just making up his own version of alternate facts. Not ot be outdone, this dumb-as-a-turd dipshit is just as ill-informed. WTF is wrong with so many of those people up there?

The deification of Nolan Ryan is and has always been a total mystery to me.
