Re: So with the Reds moving out of Sarasota...
It's possible they may extend for 2 more years, but a lot depends on the Boston and Baltimore situations. If Boston gets Sarasota for Spring Training (and Sarasota is trying hard to screw it up again) then Boston will almost certainly buy the Sarasota Reds, and the Reds will need a High A franchise.
Boston owns a High A Franchise in Salem Va, (the Avalanche), so if Boston goes to Sarasota, a franchise swap makes a lot of sense.
Baltimore might also want a franchise for Vero Beach (current team moves to Port Charlotte), so they might also want to buy/move Sarasota if the Bosox thing comes unraveled.
Either way, Carolina League seems to make most sense.
The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.
