    • MLB realigns the minors to reduce teams and make them closer to parent clubs.

      The Rays keep the Durham Bulls as their triple-A affiliate.

      • Didn't they murder 70% of the minors already? What's left?

          They murdered about 20%, and realigned another 20%.

          AAA and AA are relatively untouched. Single A and rookie ball got hammered.

              Well, it's been an inexorable process that began in the 1950s. Never forget there were once B, C, and even D leagues, and hundreds of minor league teams. We once had the equivalent of British soccer before the majors got their snouts in and destroyed.

                      I think this was the day all the new affiliation contracts officially began. The electoral college vote of sorts, without the rioting.

                      Interesting how many states are now without teams within the MLB/MiLB umbrella. Idaho, Montana, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Wyoming all lost teams. Not big, not populous, certainly no major media markets (though RI may get lumped in with bigger ones). Independent or summer-league wood bat teams will likely pop up in their place, but crazy that a league struggling with a younger audience would contract its footprint at all.

                            • Kinda surprised to see the St. Paul Saints affiliated now. They seemed to be doing just fine being independent.

                              But then again, AAA is a big step forward in terms of level of play...
