Oh man, I have been one of the vocal posters here about the need to move the AAA team.

Reading on the subject, it sounds like Syracuse comes with their own baggage, being near bankruptcy and having second lowest attendance figures doesn't sound like a great situation.

Still, I would GLADLY take it over the torture that we have experienced with AAA affiliate these past few years.


Maybe a new parent club will pump some excitement into the fanbase there. And once they get a look at Mark Reynolds they will be glued to their seats.


Are we acquiring Mark Reynolds?!?


Dangit...meant Matt.

According to a press release by the Syracuse Chiefs, the New York Mets offer for the franchise is $18 million or about $1,400 per shareholder.

The purchase is dependent upon approval by two-thirds of the team’s shareholders with a meeting scheduled for 4:00 p.m. on Nov. 17 at NBT Bank Stadium.

Syracuse will be the Mets Triple-A Affiliate starting in 2019 and the stadium lease NBT Bank Stadium runs through the 2025 season.

By 2022 we'll be hearing about the Wilpons canvassing CT for a new ballpark to be built. They'll get some sucker municipality to pony up most of the dough for the construction and then move into a new stadium in 2026.

Kinda like Major League. (Though the ex-showgirl wife of Donald Phelps inherited by marriage, didn't purchase). Still buying just to move means they might not do much in the way of improvements. Kinda sucks for Syracuse fans (all 20 of them).

Per Syracuse.com the Mets began their pursuit of @SyracuseChiefs over a year ago and had competition from a second club #Mets

That's something you almost never hear. The Mets outspent another team. :lol: (I'm kidding ofcourse, it's not all that uncommon).

It's not clear that they did. The other team wanted to move the Chiefs.
