The Colorado Sky Sox season wrapped up yesterday.  The Sky Sox needed to win one of their final four games to reach the Pacific Coast League playoffs and lost all four and their season is done.  The Sky Sox will be moving to San Antonio next year and become the Triple A team of the Texas Rangers.  As of right now, the Brewers have no home for 2019 and really only three options where they will play for the next two years.   Here is what they have for options:

Tacoma  -  Virtually no chance, its 25 miles from Seattle and has been a Mariners team for over 20 year.  The Mariners will stay here.

Round Rock  -  Absolutely no chance,  Nolan Ryan owns the franchise and will get the Astros next year once the leave Fresno.

Fresno -  Astros are leaving so this open
Las Vegas  -  Mets are moving to Syracuse so this is open with a brand new field in Summerlin next year
Nashville  -  Oakland's agreement is up so they can move

There are three teams that need an agreement on where to play next year:  Brewers, Nationals, and Athletics.   If I had to guess, I would say that the Brewers are going to get stuck with Fresno.  It always seems like they are the team that gets whatever is left over and that will be Fresno.  Fresno is just about as bad as Colorado Springs will be because of the travel.  All the other minor league teams are in the east and Fresno is about as far west as you can go.  I would love it to be Vegas, but I think Oakland is going there and Washington will want their team as close as possible so that leaves the Brewers in Fresno.  The last week of September is when this will all be decided.

In somewhat of a surprising move, the Brewers Triple A team will be the San Antonio Missions for the next two years.  It's surprising because it was widely assumed that the Texas Rangers would wind up there.  I was at the stadium in San Antonio about 10 years ago and it was not very nice.  Fox Cities Stadium, where the Timber Rattlers play, is by far a nicer stadium.  The place is a dump for a Triple A field and is why Texas chose not to locate there.  The same group that owned Colorado Springs owns the Missions as well.  When they announced that they were moving to San Antonio they assumed that a new downtown stadium was going to happen for them.  A change in the city government put an end to those plans.  If a new stadium gets built or significant improvements occur, then the Rangers will come back and the Brewers will be without a home again in two years.  Really tough situation again for the Brewers and not many good options for them out there.

Question because I know virtually nothing about minor league affiliations – why is there so much turnover? It seems like teams are constantly losing and gaining new affiliates. Shouldn't it be something that's relatively stable?
