There is an update for Jan. 9th from another blogger from Hagerstown, MD.
MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 2012
Time to clean the inbox a bit and we will start with what I have found out about the recent chatter on the Hagerstown/Winchester Suns (makes me think of the old Kansas City-Omaha Kings from the 1970's).
My source is a very reliable one and tells me that the city of Hagerstown will make a charge to keep the Suns in the Hub City and that the last swing will be a strong one.
I cannot say more than that, but allow me to say this - if this turns out to be what I have been told, the Suns will be the guilty party.
The hangup thus far with the Suns and Winchester appears to be over revenue sharing or lack thereof.
Currently, the Winchester offer that would not include revenue sharing is one that the Suns are not thrilled with.
My concern is this - If Winchester comes up with a revenue sharing offer that the team likes - is that the end game? My source says - very likely .....
The source adds this and this is a surprise to me - there is an Atlantic League team following the Hagerstown Suns situation very closely and is ready to pounce on the Hub City if the Suns are destined to leave.
Of course, affiliated baseball is much preferable to me and I am sure most fans, but that does say something about the market, if an Atlantic League (The Atlantic League is the Cadillac of Indy ball) owner thinks that highly of the potential here.
Still rather have the Suns, mind you, but this is an acceptable backup plan for me, if not others....
