With the Mets not offering Edgardo Alfonzo a new contract to manage the Brooklyn Cyclones, this just popped up on my radar. The NY Penn League (Home of the Cyclones) might be a thing of the past. I wonder what the Mets would do. Would the team bump up? Would they go to the DREAM LEAGUE? I have no clue.
Not all current full-season teams would survive in this proposal. Some short-season clubs would be asked to move up to take the place of excised full-season affiliates. The proposal even suggests a pair of independent league clubs—in St. Paul, Minn., and Sugar Land, Texas—would be brought into affiliated ball.
