Syracuse Chiefs to be Bought by the New York Mets

At the beginning of the baseball season, it was the New York Mets and not the Yankees that were expected to make the playoffs and take a run toward the World Series. The Yankees were rebuilding with youth and next year would be their year.

This was going to be the Mets year but that’s not the way it turned out with injuries and under performing players. There was some good news for their minor league teams though. In Binghamton, a name change and new attitude propelled the Double-A team to the playoffs.

Now we find out that the Triple-A team will be up the road an hour. The New York Mets have announced that they will buy the Syracuse Chiefs from the Washington Nationals. This is good news for any Mets fan but it’s even better for the Mets organization.

The Mets Triple-A team was in Las Vegas, 2,500 miles and three time zones away. That made it difficult to call someone up on short notice. Now if someone is called up from Binghamton, they will literally be traveling up I-81 to join the team

Having the top two affiliates in New York could help the Mets next season. I look at it this way, it can’t make it worse.
