I_Can't_Believe_it's_not_Boutros: Perhaps, but nobody will ever screw up the naming of a minor league as badly as the Astros did when they called their team in Kissimmee, Florida, the "Osceola County Astros," instead of the "Kissimmee Astros."
A Fark Handle: well they aren't spending money on salary. might as well buy something else...seems like an odd plan though.
WTF Indeed: That's actually a good move. New Orleans Las Vegas has always been the team clubs got when the music stopped and they still didn't have a team.
Polartank13: WTF Indeed: That's actually a good move. New Orleans Las Vegas has always been the team clubs got when the music stopped and they still didn't have a team.At least for the past few years it has been. Blue Jays 09-12 and now the Mets
yeah_so: Yeah, Vegas' ball park is terrible. Plus the wind is always going 30 mph and it's 110 degrees. Not agood mix for baseball.
jkl65s4: If the Astros get the Zephyrs to bolt, I fully expect the city of New Orleans to go after the Nashville Sounds franchise. It's probably the weakest AAA franchise in Minor League Baseball, and it's name also fits perfectly for the city.
dukeblue219: yeah_so: Yeah, Vegas' ball park is terrible. Plus the wind is always going 30 mph and it's 110 degrees. Not agood mix for baseball.And it's about 2500' above sea level too, just for good measure. Jays quit sending any decent prospects to AAA because the pitchers would get rocked and the hitters were impossible to judge based on stats when half the team is hitting .310 and Dewayne Wise is hitting .380 or so.
balfourk: NOLA Zephers were once the AAA club of the Astros. Now they are the AAA club of the marlins
Joe_diGriz: 5 outs left.
CipollinaFan: But does it still count if it is against Huston?
thoughtpol: anywhere to watch this online, guys? can't find it on TV.
thoughtpol: pretend for a moment that i don't know anything about metallurgy, engineering, or physics... and that i don't have MLB network. that's what i mean by, can't find it on TV. i guess.
jgk3: The Astrodome is still setting there in need of renovation. They should build their own stadium or pay to renovate the Astrodome, but in no way should public money be used to finance another Farking stadium in the Houston area.
germ78: Yu Darvish really wants to win EA's Perfect Game Challenge./there, I jinxed it//wish I had drafted him in fantasy
germ78: Now I'm hoping Rutledge gets a walk so CarGo has the bases loaded in Col-Mil.
thoughtpol: why take him out there? CG SO not worth anything? only 111 pitches in.
