    When the pandemic is over and the economy rebuilds, MLB will move to add at least 2 new MLB clubs. A move that will add an additional 8 full-season minor league clubs along with it.

    So, it's never over. Plus, all it really takes is a community willing to spend 50M$ on a stadium, and you'll see teams line up to move there.

    Cool. So, they've pushed out some established teams and now have more leverage to extort towns for better, fancier stadiums.

    Today was supposed to be deadline day for teams to accept the terms. Earlier in the day they said 75% had already accepted. I do think the Tortugas, and Lookouts are among the shakiest.

    Baseball America (Behind paywall which I don't subscribe to) says clubs got their Professional Development Licenses earlier this week and now have until Feb 10th to sign them. Or lose the affiliation.
