Mets announce deal with Syracuse to relocate Triple-A team. Move is expected for 2019, but was told there is an "outside chance" for '18.

The Nationals are in Syracuse for '18, but if they were to relocate, the Mets could potentially move in a year early.


I saw someone else saying the Nationals would bump their Harrisburg team to AAA. How can they just do that? They'd have to join the International League, no? And where do they put the AA team? Vegas? In what league? Not sure how that'd work.

There's nothing there about the park being indoor, which was the point. A new stadium, sure, but an "indoor" minor league park? Not happening.


I thought the Vegas park proposal was indoor. Maybe I heard that wrong.

Is it wrong of me that I'm enjoying the idea of the nationals prospects playing in 105 degree heat?


It's an outdoor stadium which was announced today:

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.

I know plenty of Mets fan in Syracuse. That factor alone will get fans to the ballpark.

So maybe the plan is to have Tebow in AAA by 2019?

Attendance figures in every stadium disagree.

Wow. I had no idea the Tebow effect was so big. He's already paid for his signing bonus and then some.

http://www.baseballamerica.com/business ... qzVB55z.97

Not sure he'll have the same draw in NY State that he has in Florida though.

and if anyone hasn't read it, I think the Amazin Avenue article on the Syracuse Chiefs is worth reading. Talks about them being last in attendance and the stadium being among the worst (not as bad as Vegas, but still close to the bottom). The mets have some work to do if they plan to turn Syracuse around.

Meh, even if you're not an Evangelical, he still offers a spectacle. I'd pay to watch Tebow strike out four times in a game for the same reason I paid to watch Conor McGregor play toddler to Mayweather's lion.
