In case you missed it, the Colorado Rockies are close to signing a player development contract with the Albuquerque Isotopes, an agreement that would mark the end of a 21-year partnership between the Rockies and the Colorado Springs Sky Sox. The Springs is the only place the Rockies' Triple-A operation has ever known, and as such, the move it eliciting strong reactions from fans and media types.
Rockies super excited to fetch those talented Albuquerque players. No one has heart to tell them that's not how it works.— Brent Briggeman (@BrentBriggeman) September 17, 2014
@PurpleRow it just stinks that I won't be able to see Rockies prospects any longer.— personalspaceinvader (@Rox_Raiduhs21) September 17, 2014
As is the case with almost anything, not all of the reaction has been negative.
We'll have more on all of the minor league reshuffling as it unfolds.
