    Some News for you Lexington Fans...

    At the Minor League Winter baseball meetings, the Midwest league is going to propose absorbing two Sally league teams into the Midwest.

    The Midwest operates with 6 teams in 1 division and 8 in another. One of the 2 teams they propose moving is Lexington.

    If they did move they's be in same Divsion with Dragons so you'd see a fair amount of Dragon games.....

    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.

    It'll be fun to be the one guy in the stadium rooting against the Legends.

    I don't know. There are tons of very faithful Dayton fans.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Here, here! I believe Lexington would be the closest Midwest League team to Dayton. ROAD TRIP!

    We'd all have to meet up there. The Legends are after all a Houston franchise.... HAVE to root against them.

    In those things which we commit to practice we can master, and with mastery we have the freedom to use these skills whenever we desire, without this practice we are slaves to our inability.

    The Legends also gave us one Kirk Saarloos. Another good reason to root against them.

    Considering my uncle has season tickets, and I pretty much can go whenever I want, I don't think I can cheer too loudly against the home team and expect him to keep giving me tickets.

    But deep down, I'll cheer when Brandon Waring destroys the ball.

    Ft. Wayne would actually be closer than Lexington, but who exactly wants to visit Ft. Wayne? It's like Dayton, only worse.

    According to Mapquest, Lexington is 134 miles from Dayton whereas Ft. Wayne is 143 miles. Essentially a coin toss.

    Sorry... it's closer for me to go to Lexington - since I live in Hamilton.

    Hamilton to Ft. Wayne = 138 miles
    Hamilton to Lexington = 111 miles

    No problem... I might be one of the few Dragons fans that live about 45 miles away to the South...
