Mets and Buffalo May Part Ways

Adam Rubin at ESPN-NY is hearing that Buffalo May Boot the Mets when their AAA agreement ends after the 2012 season.

According to Rubin:

…dissatisfaction with the product the Mets are supplying has the Bisons leaning toward switching affiliations when the current agreement expires, according to industry sources.

Can’t really blame Buffalo — the Mets have stocked their AAA club with absolute garbage for the past three seasons. If indeed the Mets get booted from Buffalo, where will their top-level minor league club wind up next? And after being booted for providing a subpar product, what city will be clamoring to host the Mets’ very minor leaguers?

The next question is, how long before Flushing boots the big league club?

    Wish the mets put there AAA affilate closer to NY. Try the NJ area. Buffalo to me is like canada Maby somewhere near Central NJ. Rutgers has proven that NYC team is from Central NJ. Might be a good place

      The can’t just move anywhere they want. They don’t own the Buffalo team. They have a 2 year agreement to supply the players and coaches. If the agreement isn’t renewed they can only move to another AAA city that has also no agreement with a club.
