The dream would also be having the Low A squad in St. Paul, perhaps share a stadium with the Saints if the new one gets built.
If anything, it makes sense for the AAA team to be close to the MLB team not a single A team. About half the MLB teams seem to have that arrangement.
Almost shocked to hear about renewing with New Britain. All indications were pointing to the Twins moving their A and AA teams (not Fort Myers, that is A+
) to the Southern and South Atlantic Leagues. I will be shocked if they stay in Beloit and esp. Rochester.
Seth, as far as the dorm in Fort Myers' go:
About a month or so ago a county commission voted for improvements to the Twins' training complex, which would go hand in hand with a 30-year lease. So I think that the dorms will be taken care of (and the Twins will be there for a while...) There is a lot of empty space south of the complex (I mean south of the county softball fields that are not part of the complex) so dorms can be had near. Also there is space across the street (not sure who are the owners, though...)
