Contraction of MiLB in Minors Posted November 25, 2020 On 6/15/2020 at 3:38 PM, wildcard said: Two of the Nationals teams are on the contraction list. Hagerstown Suns of the Sally League and the Auburn Doubleday of the NY Penn League. That leaves the Nationals without a Low A League team. I have to think they are going to add a team. If Frederick becomes available because the O's have to subtract a team then the Nationals are a logical team to move a franchise there. Maybe you are right about investment but I don't see Frederick without a affiliated minor league team considering the fan base that is there. I don't think the O's will let the Frederick fan base go. The O's want out of Frederick because Elias and Co. can't fit their data gathering operation into the stadium. Elias and Mejdal toured it when they arrived and they want out. Fredericksburg would be moved to AA if Frederick is picked up by the Nats. Nats don't do the data gathering that we do, so while this is going to sting, we might see Aberdeen or DelMarva move up the chain.
