I really think that the Reds will not be in Chattanooga next year. I heard that the Diamondback's may be there next season.
The Reds really blew it if this is true. Chattanooga has been great to them and AT&T field is one of the nicest fields in the Southern league. :thumbdown
Disagree on the AT&T field being one of the nicest in the Southern League. its a miserably hot place to watch a game during the summer; especially on afternoon games. The stadium faces almost due west and there isn't a lick of shade in the entire ball park.
Baseball, it is said, is only a game. True. And the Grand Canyon is only a hole in Arizona. Not all holes, or games, are created equal. ~George Will
Then what is the difference between Rookie and Short Season A. Seems like semantics to me.
It's no more semantics than the difference between "Low A" and "High A." It's about the quality of competition. The short-season leagues exist primarily to give just-drafted players a place to ease into pro ball, and if a club has both a Short-Season A and a Rookie League team, its more advanced draftees go to the former. The Reds, meanwhile, have to decide whether its more advanced draftees have to be thrown straight into the fire of a full-season club or go beat up on inferior competition at Billings.
