Two guesses, neither especially plausible:
1. McGraw may have been a notoriously slow writer, and getting something
out of him was like watching a snail.
2. It's a transcription error for "sell" (not likely in print, but if this
article had been phoned in to a rewrite man (a common newspaper practice),
then "sell" could be misinterpreted over the phone as "snail".
