The Toronto Blue Jays have officially informed the Auburn Doubledays (short season A; NY-Penn League) that their 10-year affiliation marriage is over, and the Blue Jays will seek the affections of another short-season team.
No surprise: the Blue Jays had telegraphed they were not happy in Auburn and would probably seek another farm team. And, as Auburn is contractually assured an MLB parent, no feelings were hurt.
Still, it’s not as though there are a lot of great options out there besides the Tri-City ValleyCats (short season A; NY-Penn League) certainly one of the best-run teams in that circuit at the moment. Other teams in the NY-Penn League still needing a parent are Batavia, Vermont and Jamestown.
