A, A+, or AA I'm sure, yeah.The question is what about all those players still developing ? they all move straight to single A ? that's a a lot of prospects.
I don't know the definitive answer but one article I saw made it sound like the teams would go out of business but that makes no sense because why would they? They would lose affiliation with MLB teams but who says the teams couldn't just keep playing games separate from MLB affiliation? There are plenty of teams out there with no affiliations and they exist just fine.I haven't read into this much but what happens to those teams if they lose the affiliation. Do they go out of business or do they possibly become independent league teams?
I’m assuming someone could switch their affiliate to that stadium/city at some point right? I’m sure a stadium that nice won’t go to wasteThis contraction is absolutely insane and is hitting my area especially hard.
Clinton IA (about 45 min away form me) is a hole of a city but the team and stadium has been around forever. The team in Burlington IA (about 2 hours from me) has had a team there for like 130 years and would hit the town hard.
The biggest nonsense of it all is the fact that the team in my town, Quad Cities River Bandits, is being contracted. It is the best low level minor league stadium in the country and they've spent a lot rebuilding it. Yet the shithole that is Beloit gets to stay?? Absolutely Ridiculous
