  1. That's correct. Six games in 2016 and a few in 2017, then powder blues in 2018. The Phils have worn red alternates on the road before ... way back in 1992 in San Diego
  2. Getting back on topic, the Phillies will be wearing a commemorative patch for Dick Allen this season
  3. The Vermont Lake Monsters were sold and will become the 8th team in the FCBL (Futures Collegiate Baseball League) Five teams left in limbo: Florida Fire Frogs Jackson Generals Lancaster JetHawks Lowell Spinners Norwich Sea Unicorns
  4. ^^^^ rumored to be West Virginia. I'm assuming those two will join Gastonia and High Point in one division while Long Island moves to the other with the PA and Maryland teams
  5. Minor league schedules were released today. Pretty much everything is six-game series running Tuesday through Sunday, with everyone having Mondays off for travel except Triple-A West, which will have Wednesdays off for cheaper flight rates. Lots of weird 1-year setups, including some divisions staying within their own (like Triple-A East Northeast), AAA having the only All-Star break, and nobody expecting to have playoffs
  6. Lexington has an announcement scheduled for tomorrow, where I'm guessing they'll say they're joining the Atlantic or Frontier League
  7. The star design is too close to the Astros one of that era
  8. Am I missing it or did Chris' latest article recapping the realignment forget the West Virginia Power among the teams in limbo?
  9. Kane County will be joining the American Association partner league https://www.americanassociationbaseball.com/american-association-welcomes-kane-county-cougars/
  10. NEW LOGO unveiled today: Simpler look with the addition of teal and going lowercase PREVIOUS LOGO:
  11. That Cooper article doesn't make sense. I thought Mid-Atlantic and Carolina were going to be two separate six-team leagues? Matthew - The independent Atlantic League, American Association and Frontier League will now have the demoted Pioneer League also in the mix. Pioneer is expected to run after the draft for players that go undrafted. The Draft League (consisting of six former MiLB teams) and the demoted Appalachian League will be wood bat leagues for college players. Draft League will have draft-eligible players that aren't competing in the College World Series, while Appalachian League will be for top freshmen and sophomores not eligible for the draft. The other existing summer leagues (Cape Cod, etc.) will continue to exist as alternate options
  12. Has there been any confirmation of this? I've also seen Bowling Green mentioned as the sixth team
  13. If that list is accurate, one of the Midwest League teams needs to move to the new Mid-Atlantic one. Also the "Carolina League" will have Rome GA in it The Tri-City for the Angels appears to be the Northwest League one that was on the original cut list, not the NYPL one
  14. The most recent reports I read were that Daytona survived the cut, which leaves the Rays with a SAL team
  15. FSL is expected to be 10 teams, so it would be 12 in SAL
  16. Looks like they won't be announcing anything until next week. From what I've been reading, here's where things stand as of now: (* = unofficial but expected based on reports) Atlanta path = GCL > Rome > ___ > Mississippi > Gwinnett Miami path = GCL > Jupiter > Asheville* > Pensacola* > Jacksonville* NY Mets path = GCL > St. Lucie > Brooklyn > Binghamton > Syracuse Philadelphia path = GCL > Clearwater > Jersey Shore* > Reading > Lehigh Valley Washington path = GCL > Fredericksburg* > Wilmington* > Harrisburg > Rochester Chicago Cubs path = AZL > Myrtle Beach* > South Bend* > Tennessee* > Iowa Cincinnati path = AZL > Daytona* > Dayton* > Chattanooga* > Louisville Milwaukee path = AZL > Carolina* > Wisconsin* > Biloxi* > Nashville* Pittsburgh path = GCL > Bradenton > Greensboro* > Altoona > Indianapolis St. Louis path = GCL > Palm Beach > Peoria* > Springfield > Memphis Arizona path = AZL > Visalia > Hillsboro* > San Antonio* > Reno Colorado path = AZL > Fresno* > Boise* > Hartford* > Albuquerque LA Dodgers path = AZL > Rancho Cucamonga > Spokane* > Tulsa > Oklahoma City San Diego path = AZL > Lake Elsinore > ___ > Amarillo* > El Paso San Francisco path = AZL > San Jose > ___ > Richmond* > Sacramento Baltimore path = GCL > Delmarva > Aberdeen > Bowie > Norfolk Boston path = GCL > Salem > Greenville* > Portland > Worcester NY Yankees path = GCL > Tampa > Hudson Valley > Somerset > Scranton/WB Tampa Bay path = GCL > ___ > Charleston* > Montgomery > Durham Toronto path = GCL > Dunedin > Vancouver* > New Hampshire > Buffalo Chicago WS path = AZL > Kannapolis > Winston-Salem > Birmingham > Charlotte Cleveland path = AZL > Lynchburg* > Lake County* > Akron > Columbus Detroit path = GCL > Lakeland > West Michigan* > Erie* > Toledo Kansas City path = AZL > ___ > ___ > Northwest Arkansas* > Omaha Minnesota path = GCL > Fort Myers > Cedar Rapids* > Wichita* > St. Paul* Houston path = GCL > Fayetteville* > Beloit* > Corpus Christi > Sugar Land LA Angels path = AZL > Inland Empire > ___ > Rocket City* > Salt Lake Oakland path = AZL > Stockton > Lansing* > Midland* > Las Vegas Seattle path = AZL > Modesto > Everett > Arkansas > Tacoma Texas path = AZL > Down East* > Hickory* > Frisco* > Round Rock*
  17. It's a cheaper option for the family than going to a pro game, and the kids won't know the difference in the players anyway. They're usually more interested in the mascot or a dog running on the field or getting food
  18. New reports from the Bay Area say the Athletics won't be getting Vancouver after all. Looks like they'll be staying with the Blue Jays and Oakland will get Lansing instead
  19. St. Paul and Wichita to the Twins will be official this week Also says the high-A will stay in Cedar Rapids
  20. https://www.milb.com/williamsport/news/williamsport-crosscutters-continue-affiliation-with-major-league-baseball-in-new New "MLB Draft League" running late-May to mid-August, 68-game schedule w/ All-Star break around the July draft Mahoning Valley Scrappers State College Spikes Trenton Thunder West Virginia Black Bears Williamsport Crosscutters A 6th team will be added soon and it's expected to be the Hagerstown Suns
  21. Correct. Unless something else changes, it's looking like Eastern League stays at 12 teams (Somerset replaces Trenton), Southern drops to 8 and Texas goes to 10
  22. Yeah Williamsport will be heading to independent ball (or whatever NYPL becomes) The Yankees triangle will likely be the closest out of everyone. Hudson Valley is between the "h" and "y" of "Lehigh Valley" on that map above, then Somerset is below the "g" in "Pigs", then Scranton/WB is the northwest corner of the "P" in "Pigs"
  23. While we wait for more announcements, here's what we know so far: (* = unofficial but expected based on reports) Atlanta path = GCL > Rome > ___ > Mississippi > Gwinnett Miami path = GCL > Jupiter > ___ > Pensacola* > Jacksonville* NY Mets path = GCL > St. Lucie > Brooklyn > Binghamton > Syracuse Philadelphia path = GCL > Clearwater > Jersey Shore* > Reading > Lehigh Valley Washington path = GCL > ___ > ___ > Harrisburg > Rochester Chicago Cubs path = AZL > ___ > ___ > ___ > Iowa Cincinnati path = AZL > ___ > ___ > ___ > Louisville Milwaukee path = AZL > ___ > Carolina > ___ > Nashville* Pittsburgh path = GCL > Bradenton > ___ > Altoona > Indianapolis St. Louis path = GCL > Palm Beach > ___ > Springfield > Memphis Arizona path = AZL > Visalia > ___ > ___ > Reno Colorado path = AZL > Fresno* > ___ > ___ > Albuquerque LA Dodgers path = AZL > Rancho Cucamonga > Spokane* > Tulsa > Oklahoma City San Diego path = AZL > Lake Elsinore > ___ > Amarillo* > El Paso San Francisco path = AZL > San Jose > ___ > ___ > Sacramento Baltimore path = GCL > Delmarva > Aberdeen > Bowie > Norfolk Boston path = GCL > Salem > ___ > Portland > Worcester NY Yankees path = GCL > Tampa > Hudson Valley > Somerset > Scranton/WB Tampa Bay path = GCL > Charlotte > ___ > Montgomery > Durham Toronto path = GCL > Dunedin > ___ > New Hampshire > Buffalo Chicago WS path = AZL > Kannapolis > Winston-Salem > Birmingham > Charlotte Cleveland path = AZL > ___ > ___ > Akron > Columbus Detroit path = GCL > Lakeland > ___ > ___ > Toledo Kansas City path = AZL > ___ > ___ > ___ > Omaha Minnesota path = GCL > Fort Myers > ___ > ___ > St. Paul* Houston path = GCL > ___ > Fayetteville > Corpus Christi > Sugar Land LA Angels path = AZL > Inland Empire > ___ > ___ > Salt Lake Oakland path = AZL > Stockton > Vancouver > Midland* > Las Vegas Seattle path = AZL > Modesto > Everett > Arkansas > Tacoma Texas path = AZL > Hickory > Down East > Frisco* > Round Rock*
  24. FWIW Baseball America says the Spokane thing isn't 100% done yet, and they also reported the Mariners chain is the same four teams, just swapping Everett and Modesto AZL > Modesto > Everett > Arkansas > Tacoma
