What a joke of a high-A affiliate. I think high school teams draw better.

Hopefully 2012 will be the final year the Reds are affiliated with the Bakersfield Blaze. What are the chances of that happening? Where are some possible landing spots? And is there a chance the Carolina Mudcats could move to high-A and reunite with the Reds?

It must be odd for players to get "promoted" from the Dayton Dragons to the Bakersfield Blaze. Talk about one end of the spectrum to the other in terms of fan support/atmosphere.
