Houston general manager Ed Wade knows uncertainty is part of baseball. The proposed sale of the Astros from Drayton McLane to Jim Crane is expected to be approved when major league owners vote Thursday, a move that could have Houston switch from the NL to the AL. Wade, a former GM of the Philadelphia Phillies, said he's just been working on what he needs to get done in the offseason, as usual, and not fretting about his future with new ownership on the horizon. Wade and other baseball GMs met Tuesday and will get together again Wednesday. Dodgers GM Ned Colletti said details are being finalized on a new deal for Matt Kemp, reported to be eight years for $160 million. Colletti said it could be wrapped up before Thanksgiving.
