Sounds like they are buying the team so they won't be moving around every few years anymore.

This is the best Mets news since they clinched a wild card berth in '16.

AA to AAA is literally an hour drive.

Sweet. (or bout dam time), but either way, happy to hear it.

I'll bet the Nats get a revamped, indoor stadium Vegas, but still, it's good to be closer. Last time I talked to someone from there, he told me Syracuse has like 20% unemployment. A very depressed area, kind of like Binghamton.

Are they going to rename from the Chiefs to the Mets?

Stadium looks pretty good. Opened in 1997. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NBT_Bank_Stadium

I believe the Mets now own every affiliate except for Low-A. I wonder if most organizations own all or most of their affiliates.

Now we can get an emergency player here in time for a game and not have him bleary eyed from an overnight flight. And they'll be playing real baseball, not that Vegas nonsense

Pretty sure Nats did this to try to keep Harper. Now he knows if he gets sent to AAA at least he gets to GI home.

I think the mets did it, by buying the Syracuse Chiefs. I don't think the Nats did it. Nats moved to Vegas by default.

somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

The Mets will own the Nationals triple-A affiliate in 2018.

That's really weird.

Time to make some weird orders to the grounds crew...

I imagine keeping Harper happy during his mid-career crisis, where he needs to reinvent himself in triple-A, will be the selling point the Nats need to resign him when he hits free agency. :lol: :lol: :lol:
