Albuquerque, Carolina adn Greensboro have all re-signed contracts. We own both the FSL and GCL Jupiter clubs. All that leaves is a rookie or short-season A-club or two.

 

We didn't re-sign with Jamestown. The candidates are:

 

Auburn, NY (New York-Penn, formerly with the Jays)

Burlington, VT (New York-Penn, formerly with the Nats)

Vancouver (Northwest, formerly witht the A's)

Pulaski, VA (Appalachain, formerly with the Jays) - Must be purchased

Billings (Pioneer, formerly with the Reds)

Idaho Falls (Pioneer, formerly with the Royals)

 

 

So far we've been linked to Burlington and Pulaski according to news reports.

Maybe Loria will sell the Marlins and then buy the Pulaski franchise!

You kid, but the Pulaski and the Appy league is the most geographically concentrated league in the low minors and offer the best support of any. Plus it's close by our low-A club. That and summers in southwest Virginia are fun. Aside from the fact it doesn't offer the best competition (half of the teams are the lower rookie club of organizations) which just so happens a huge factor, it's the best option available.

 

It wouldn't surprise me if we grab Burlington or Auburn (in danger of moving) though.

Jammers To Keep Affiliation With Marlins

 

By JIM RIGGS

 

10/7/2006 - After a flurry of New York-Penn League teams changing affiliations since the season ended, it has been announced that the Jamestown Jammers will spend another two years as an affiliate of the Florida Marlins.

 

This past season the Jammers had their best record as a Marlins’ affiliate with a 33-39 mark and a fifth-place finish in the Pinckney Division.

 

Jamestown began its affiliation with Florida in 2002 and was 32-42, followed by 22-51 in 2003, 3045 in 2004 and 31-44 in 2005.

 

The last time the Jammers made the postseason was 2001 as a wild card when they were an Atlanta Braves affiliate.

 

Since the 2006 NY-P League season ended, State College, which had been affiliated with St. Louis, became a Pittsburgh farm club. Pittsburgh had been affiliated with Williamsport, but now Philadelphia has signed a player development agreement there. Philadelphia had it’s team in Batavia, which is now a St. Louis affiliate.

 

The Batavia and Philadelphia affiliation had lasted 19 years and Williamsport had been with Pittsburgh for eight seasons.

 

Florida is Jamestown’s eighth affiliation since being a charter member of the Pennsylvania-Ontario-New York League (PONY) in 1939.

 

The others were:

 

Atlanta 1967, 1999-2001

 

Boston 1968-70

 

Detroit 1940-42, 1944-56, 1961-64, 1994-98

 

Los Angeles 1965-66

 

Montreal 1971-73, 1977-93

 

Pittsburgh 1939, 1957

 

St. Louis 1943.
