      I think they would be foolish to do so. The best way to mitigate the potential damage at the gate in 2013 is to wait until all the pieces are in order. That includes issuing coinciding announcements about replacement teams, so fans understand there will be baseball the following season. It seemed like a pretty seamless transition from the Double-A Carolina Mudcats (Southern League) to the Single-A Carolina Mudcats (Carolina League). The Eastern League, New York-Penn League, Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (making some assumptions here) musical chairs should keep most non-hard core baseball fans happy, if everything is rolled out at the same time.
