Along with 6 new owners this season, we had a rash of teams vacating old cities and relocating. Must be the economy.
The Nashville Kool Kats (6 seasons) have become the Mexico City Desperados, giving the NL South a decidedly Tex-Mex flavor.
The Cleveland Katanas have headed east to Hartford, hoping to nullify opposing pitchers in the cozy confines of Welch Park.
The Scranton Beet Farmers have morphed into the Madison Badgers. Another offense-booster, as Bessire Park is a noted launching pad.
The Austin City Limits (so Austin) stayed home and held a new-name contest with the faithful. The winning entry: the Unhinged Chaloupas (so very Austin).
