I don't think we're going to wind up with a 2-level minor-league system.

But I think you're right that the sabermetricians probably think most of the minor league ladder is nonsense and that they can pick 95% of the good players without even seeing them. If they went minimalist, they could probably get by with AAA in a stadium and AA at the complex.

It just sucks, because there is a love of baseball in this country, and there are a lot of people like me who would much rather watch guys on their way up than primadonnas. (I watch MLB, but it doesn't hold my attention the same way. And I only go to a handful of MLB games a year, whereas I go to as many MILB and college and summer collegiate games as possible.)

It kills me that the Frederick Keys -- consistently one of the best draws in the Advanced A level -- are now going to be relegated to hosting a summer collegiate league team, solely because of geography. (It seems like the Orioles must be shifting their Advanced A to Aberdeen -- or Delmarva, if they then shift their Low A to Aberdeen.)
