Michael Rand started RandBall with hopes that he could convince the world to love jumpsuits as much as he does. So far, he's only succeeded in using the word "redacted" a lot. He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

Every Minnesota minor league affiliate is now in Iowa, it seems

Posted by: Michael Rand under Professional baseball, Wolves news Updated: July 15, 2013 - 3:54 PM

 

It started in September of 2012, with the Twins' official announcement that its low-Class A affiliate would be moving from Beloit, Wis., to Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Then, this April, the Wild announced it was moving its AHL affiliate from Houston to Des Moines. And now, today, the Timberwolves announced their D-League affiliate is shifting from Sioux Falls to Des Moines.

 

Questions:

*What's up with this?

*Is everyone in both states OK with the major/minor arrangement we have going on here?

*Anyone want to start organizing (as soon as the full schedules come out) a weekend in Iowa to see both the Iowa Wild and the Iowa Energy? We're imagining such a thing is possible, even if they are sharing a building in Des Moines.
