I'm not familiar with the process, but how is location determined for our AAA club?
Are there geographical restrictions?
Do you think a place like New Jersey would be a good place for our AAA club? Geez, if Buffalo cut it, I'd take NJ.
Vegas just seems like a different league.
We are taking over the Vegas franchise. Who ever had an agreement with them before is moving somewhere else, either taking over someone else, or starting a new team somewhere. It doesn't matter.
Anybody know what the ballpark effects are? The PCL used to have a rep for pumping up offensive numbers. HR's on checked swings, and 25-40 point higher BA's. This could lead to high expectations.

We swapped with Toronto who will now be in Buffalo.
"We can not put a AAA team in New Jersey without the Yankees consent. That's why when we put the Cyclones in Brooklyn the Yankees put a team in Staten Island."
Mets/Wilpons don't own a AAA team (insert joke here) so they can't move a AAA team anywhere.
Not the questions I was replying to.
The questions were
The answer to the question is no team including the Mets can move a AAA team into Northern New Jersey because the Yankees or Mets, or Southern Jersey because the Phillies won't allow it. It would be easier in South Jersey because only the Phillies would have to approve it, but the Phillies would never let a Met or Yankee AAA team in South Jersey because they don't want their fans going to cheaper AAA games and becoming fans of teams other then the Phillies.
"we could move the las vegas team to someplace like Berlin or Bejing if we really wanted to."
Mets don't own the Las Vegas 51's so they can't move them anywhere, just like they didn't own Buffalo, the owners can decide to move them if they want to but that is not up to the Mets.
"I don't really know if a major league team can just start up it's own AAA team in a city with no competitive restrictions, but I don;t see why not. I'd like to see our AAA team in San Juan."
Because that is not how it works, there are 30 minor league teams a team can't just decide to start a new one, that would be like saying the Yankees want to start up a 31st major league team somewhere.
