Not a fan of the writer, but a good piece, nonetheless.

MLB’s minor league plan is slap in the face to Jackie Robinson
Definitely disturbing, and completely strange that the Daytona park would be on the list given its historical significance. Personally, it's upsetting to me that three teams in Iowa are on the block, including the one from the city where I grew up and that provided me with my entry into baseball fandom 50 years ago. Seems pretty disproportionate, but then, MLB seems to care very little about our state in general, having deemed in their wisdom that all six ML teams in the surrounding states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Missouri are considered "in-market" for us, and therefore blacked out. I still love the game; the organization, not so much.
