    I dont know how they expect to keep the travel teams. They will generate no revenue since they will not have any home games.

    Also, why on earth is this league having their pitchers hit? Why not let those who are hitters continue to improve by utilizing the DH?

    I can tell your as excited about this as I am. Nothing like professional baseball where players make less than minimum wage.

    Really, one question remains. Which team will fold first? But seriously, I miss the Continental League.
