membengal responded:good spot start by Parch, if you take Alonso away from Sarasota doesnt that leave them without much, keep things balanced and at least wait until after the draft, there's no hurry.
And he was 100% right. Affiliates, especially ones on the way out, serve the major league organization, not the other way around. No one cares about the Sarasota Reds, not even people in Sarasota, who barely show up for Sarasota Reds games.I could not care less about Sarasota's needs as a team.
I'll let you be the judge of your response to membengal making a perfectly valid point.
For the record, I could care less about Yonder Alonso. I don't like him. I don't dislike him.
