Brett already got on this over in the story stream, but, I think the more outlets proclaiming and discussing this news, the better.

Per Anthony Andro’s Twitter:

Crane just shook Nolan’s hand and said Congratulations we’re done.

Awesome. I was not one that thought Cuban would be a bad owner, and I saw reasons to like him, but, like many here, I’ve been on board with what Chuck Greenberg was cooking from the start. And, more importantly, it’s nice to (knock on wood) finally have this just about done.

The Rangers win in awesome fashion, the ownership drama seems to have taken a very good turn, and the Magic Number reminds me of Daryl Johnston. It is a good night to be a Rangers fan.

Some other Twitterings for more information. Starting with Daniel Kaplan.

greenberg just went to $385 mln. presuming they are factoring in cuban has to be about $25 mln over greenberg

its over!! cuban just through in the towel!

the court room erupted in applause. congratulations to chuck greenberg and nolan ryan

Holy cow, it's over... Cuban/Crane concede to Greenberg/Ryan at 12:42am CT on Aug 5. Cash deal at $385M

And back to Aandro.

A happy Chuck Greenberg. http://tweetphoto.com/36918599
