Re: Is 2012 the last year we're stuck with Bakersfield?
You look at the Carolina League, and you see it is going to be difficult for the Reds to get in. There just are not going to be many vacancies.
Minor League Baseball has wanted to move two California League franchises into the Carolina League but they have not had facilities to go into. Now they have at least one (Kinston). They need one more to pull it off.
