This post links to an article which explores a very emotional topic about independent professional baseball:  why the players, if they are so good, are not with “affiliated” Minor League teams.  The article interviews the managers of the Atlantic League’s 2009 All Star teams and asks them why their players are not at the next level of play.

It is a short, but interesting article; and you are welcome to comment on the topic.  All that is asked is that you keep your comments relevant to the article topic, use “clean” vocabulary, and that you attempt to add to the conversation.  Should you simply want to talk about your favorite independent player or team, or if you want to “bash” a particular independent baseball league or team, then please go to the Forums page and determine if your options there allow you to voice the opinions you wish.  Thank you for abiding by this request.
