I don’t know what’s going on with the Mets AAA team but we’re now leaving our 3rd city after that 40 year run in Norfolk, VA.
According to ESPN
After almost 40 years in Norfolk the kicked the Mets to the curb when they “became disenchanted with the quality of the product and the attention given by the Mets”
Then we had a short stint in New Orleans which ended after just 2 seasons and now booted from Buffalo.
I wonder why the Met AAA is so lame. Wasn’t this the type of stuff Alderson was supposed to excel at? Organizational wide expertise and professionalism.
The trend in recent years has been to promote from AA or after quick stops at AAA so perhaps the Mets have frustrated their AAA affiliates by not assigning their prospects long enough for the local team owner’s liking. But I wouldn’t think the Mets are any worse than any other franchise in this regard.
Now we may end up in Las Vegas which is a terrible geographic disadvantage for an East Coast team.
I wish I knew more about how the Mets came up short with the product they deliver in AAA and what exactly do they not pay attention to.
Either way it’s an embarrassment… typical Mets.
