  1. And it will be curious to see how the American Association reacts to this. They could go on now with just twelve teams, realigning and cutting out the interleague games with the CanAm, which hopefully adds at least one more team if not three…from where I know not, especially if Frank Bolton takes away the teams that were a part of the CanAm and Atlantic League of years gone by. Doubt if Bolton and Wolff can work together on anything, as nice and great as that would be. Stay tuned?

    would love to see Brockton come back as an indepentdent, or that the Plymouth MA idea would take greater root as well.

    Word was out that the AA had other expansion in mind. What’s the latest on that? Do they continue to carry Sioux City because of tradition, even though attendance has been abysmal there? The few fans there are very loyal, and it must be cost effective enough.

  2. and I wonder if the AAA team will be the El Paso Padres…doable…or whether they will honor the history and try to pick up Diablos themselves.

    I guess there are patent rights to buy out if they are interested. Looking forward to seeing pictures of the stadium when completed; wondering if anyone will take over Cohen Stadium. Do any college teams play there?

    Maybe the Mexican League would find a new home there. Crazy idea.
