MiLB head on Huntsville: 'We can force the club to leave'

The president of Minor League Baseball, Pat O'Conner, piles on about Huntsville's Joe Davis Stadium in the Huntsville Times, saying "they need a ballpark."

"Vee haf ways of making you move".... sounds like a threat from an old war movie!

Huntsville needs a new stadium, but threats from MiLB wont get it... cities are just about over the whole "build a stadium or we leave" thing. Especially after the Marlins deceived the Miami public, there should be no more public funding for athletics.

Baseball teams abuse their fans and players and parks at will in most places, and then get mad when fans stop showing up. Frankly its nice to see a city push back, even tho it means the end of the line for Huntsville baseball.

I am curious tho, to see what exactly Minor League Baseball can do to Huntsville to make them leave that the fans havent already said or done.

I notice of the teams that are mentioned "the only available major league affiliates are expected to be the Anaheim Angels, Detroit Tigers, San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants and Seattle Mariners."

does this mean we can expect a PDC extension for the Biscuits and Rays?
