Wichita (KS) appears to have reached an agreement to acquire New Orleans (Miami's AAA team) for either 2020 or 2021

Rumor is if New Orleans gets another team, they'll get a relocated AA Southern League team

-- KC renewed with Wilmington through 2020

-- The Dodgers renewed their AA, high-A and A deals through 2020, but not their short-A one (yet)

our company hq is in tulsa, they always have tickets for those games and i think one of the conference rooms is named 'driller conference room'. i can't imagine living in a town where the big pull is the minor league team.
Not everything I think is something I should say.

Keep one eye open for the Reading and LV BSGers.

Two 2-year extensions in high-A: Daytona with the Reds and Lynchburg with the Indians

With Fort Myers winning the FSL title, I'm assuming the Twins will renew there and the Rays will stay in Port Charlotte, which would leave Inland Empire and Lake Elsinore as the only openings in high-A

Dude, I live in Northumberland County and work in Schuylkill. I’m equidistant from both Reading and Williamsport. Because I’m close to 81 the Harrisburg Senators are probably the team I could get down to see fastest.
Together we will win this game against the evil Space Yankees! Eat Fresh!

Since the Mets snagged Syracuse, the Nats AAA are homeless. Nashville has long been rumored, but I understand that it would require an upgraded ballpark. They also need Oakland to move on. Vegas is the only option currently I believe.

The Nashville stadium is almost new, isn't it? Feel like it was brand new when I was there a few years ago.

Wow, everyone assumed Texas was taking that one. Fresno already announced they're done with Houston, so that means the Rangers or Nats will be there

A less exciting extension [/PiP]: the Blue Jays and Bluefield re-signed through 2020, which means the Yankees will likely re-sign with Pulaski

Nats to Fresno for 2 years...lulz. Their AAA team will be all the way on the other side of the country ... worse than Mets/Vegas

Rangers to Nashville through 2022, which leaves the Astros with a Round Rock reunion as expected

Angels and Inland Empire extended through 2022, which keeps the Padres and Lake Elsinore together, and high-A is wrapped up once the Rays and Padres deals become official
