I suppose you could, but it would be pointless because the level of competition would be wrong. It's not just about Dayton and Bakersfield, it's about the rest of both leagues. You'd be hanging out your less developed guys to dry having them over their head in a high A league, and sticking your better players against inferior competition not learning anything in a low A league. We're just stuck with Bakersfield, we have to deal with it.
