Sugar Land Skaters will become a new Triple-A partner for Astros, reports Fox 26’s Mark Berman. The two sides reached an agreement in which Astros would acquire an ownership stake in Skeeters, according to Berman. The length of the deal is not known yet.
This is a big step for Skeeters, a Texas-based team that has been an independent club in the Atlantic League since its inception in 2010.. They have had a number of major, familiar league names on their rosters since then, including Roger Clemens, Raphael Palmero and Scott Casmir.. With no underage campaign in 2020, Skeeters launched the four-team Constellation Energy League, which they won with the help of some of the past major leagues you might know when looking at their roster..
The fact that Astros has a new Triple-A Team will leave Round Rock Express with some uncertainty. Round Rock has spent the last two years as Houston’s best club, despite having only had one season of play (2019) due to the pandemic..
Any way you said someone should pick the idea as a joke the other day I didn’t think this would actually happen
This has been rumored to be happening for a while, and it was even mentioned earlier this year. The same consideration is given to St. Paul Saints became a Minnesota Twins company in 2021 (and beyond).
Yes, I heard about that.
This one kinda baffles me. Saints – by all accounts – make a very good profit every year.
I’m trying to figure out why they like it.
You might assume MLB that takes a stake brings two big things to the table:
Remember that most businesses in general are hit by the Covid virus. You can be rich and not have a lot of cash to cover this kind of thing.
Yes. I see what it says here. In a natural setting I wonder if they would still be interested. Guess they won’t?
But it would be a nice step for the twins to have their AAA team over the bridge.
The Carolina League is HIgh A.. There is currently no HIgh A League in Texas. There’s talk of moving their Texas AAA to Round Rock (they’re currently in Nashville, Tennessee – a facility that’s only 2-3 years old).
The Carolina League is the only one a. Triple A is located in Nashville, so the return to Round Rock will be even closer.
Woo. This feeling when your league team joins the small league team which is 12 minutes drive away from your home.
Can you show your work in the margins? At what time of day is this estimated flight scheduled? Which way do you take? How fast are you driving? Do you follow all applicable laws and adhere to stated speed limits?
All the good questions that Rick Hahn might wish Reinsdorf posed to La Rossa during his last interview.
agentx: Thank you. I really laughed out loud when I read your post 🙂
I needed that laugh today. Thank you again !!
Doesn’t Astros own Round Rock Express, or something? I might be faking, but if that was the case, I couldn’t see them severing ties with them completely.
Yes, Ryan does. So their transfer from Rangers to the Astros subsidiary wasn’t a big deal for them. Maybe it was because JD had a brawl with Nolan a few years back, so they flipped over to Houston.
Important news for Skitters and Somerset Patriots (NJ) for being picked up by MLB teams.
Go back to Rangers RRE !!! I live near Round Rock, so I’d like to see them partner up again with Rangers!
You wouldn’t be surprised to see Round Rock take on the role of Rangers AA. Frisco is very close to Arlington and this beautiful stadium would be AAA imo.
Interestingly, the two teams that have hosted temporary leagues (Somerset and Sugar Land) have succeeded in jumping
(Sure enough) there were rumors about Sugar Land before the pandemic ever took hold. So those who create the League Leagues had no effect.
Round Rock became a TEX company and Nashville went out on its own in a bid to expand?
Dombrowski &. Sugarland’s latest strategy can even be simulated with their Constellation Energy indie league while pursuing their current MLB expansion team or franchise..
Which is in line with Nashville desires for camp soccer this year. I wouldn’t be surprised to see any substitution that involves them doing something beyond the satellite ball next year.
Team Rays will identify all of their farm teams in Tampa, and run 5 games per day starting at 10 a.m. (The lowest ranking games run seven rounds, since many teams in Florida play in the morning / early afternoon on any Event), in Trop. Admission for a full day will be $ 15. Come anytime, leave anytime, and come back if you like.
Ignorant question: what happens to the players on Team Skeeters. . Do they now belong to Houston or are they now free agents?
If it follows the way the ID expects, technically speaking, the Independent Team and the Houston Team are two different teams, with the same name / ownership group. I don’t think most indie teams sign players multi-year deals, but I assume they’ve been purchased.
1) If the dependency and fractional ownership stake deal with the acquisition of any of the players, Asyros would gain that extent of control..
2) The sliders would then be forced to release and repay the balance of unearned contracted positions, just like any employee who had funds because those were chain obligations.
I see the former Mets professional, Gavin Sischenyi, who played for the Skaters last season. It would always be a fun answer for Mets when he scored his (only?) First match from Team Kershaw
Lol yup 4 started them in 2014, and it had a 6. 75 eps in 6 2/3 IP at a ratio of 10: 0 BB: K. .
I imagine Round Rock is due to being a subsidiary of Rangers. I also wouldn’t be surprised if San Antonio, El Paso and / or Wichita went to the Texas League, indirectly giving way to Saint Paul’s Saints..
Well this stinks. We go to about 25% of games every season at RR. The stadium is beautiful and tied properly so they will find a certain level of affiliates to place there.
Yes, this off-season has been a disaster for existing AAA towns. I worry that they will also go because they haven’t had a useful update on their stadium since it was built.
This is at least the third independent team to replace a minor league team. As someone who lives in AAA town, I feel anxious
