    MLB is considering a massive restructuring of the minor league system.

    Minor league affiliates would drop from 160 to 120.
    Draft would go from 40 rounds to 20.
    Realignment of leagues for better geographic fit.

    The PCL is really the only one that seems to be wildly spread out, so I'm not quite sure how much realignment there will be, but I guess that depends on who gets dropped.

    I can kinda see it. To use the Southern League as an example, you have an 8 hour bus ride between the Tennessee Smokies and Biloxi Shuckers and several 5-6 hour in/out of Knoxville. Within that 8 hour window, there are quite a few MiLB teams in different leagues within 3 hours of Knoxville (even excluding the Appalachian League).

    AAA isn't horrible since those teams travel on chartered flights in the same manner an MLB team would. It's costly, but flight/bus time is about the same if they were to redo the International League and PCL.

    True. You could get a 10-12 team league in Michigan/Ohio/Indiana with current affiliated teams where it looks like max travel would be five hours.

    Right now in the Midwest League max travel is eight hours.

    Baseball is a funny game. The Yankees were actually statistically better in both offensive and pitching statistics, nearly across the board. The Astros were simply much more opportunistic, and took advantage of their chances.

    You (still) can't predict baseball, Suzyn.

    Sounds like the St. Paul Saints have more or less been included in the MLB minor league plan.

    Not sure I like them as an affiliate.

    You also have to take into account fairness, justice, karma, God in Heaven, and what's morally right.

    MLB umpire Eric Cooper passes at 52. Worked 21 years in the big leagues. Had just worked Twins-Yanks.

    Really all you need to know:

    Taubman, a former fantasy baseball expert and investment banker, joined the Astros organization in 2013 as an analyst and was promoted to assistant general manager last September.
