I do like the idea of Madison, WI as a AAA affiliate as mentioned by another poster in another thread earlier today. I think it's far enough away from Minneapolis, yet close enough to help build the fringes of Easter Twins Territory. I don't think travel to other IL cities would be too prohibitive either. I'd prefer Des Moines, since I live there, but don't see the Cubbies leaving this affiliation anytime soon.
Madison would be a cool and fun place to seemingly go to a AAA ball game, but they are a 1:15 hour drive from Milwaukee and 2:30 hour drive from Chi-Town. If anyone was to have a AAA affiliate in Madison, it should be the Brewers. Someone on one of the threads proposed the idea of Sioux Falls being the Twin's AAA destination. I could see that as being viable. Sioux Falls is chill, but somewhat nice. I have some family out in that area and they are Big Time Twins fans and most of that area seems to be aligned to the Twins. Why not give it a try?
