Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Day 174: River Cats Now Belong to The Giants!

There have been rumours for some time that the Sacramento River Cats organization was in discussion with the San Francisco Giants to switch allegiance as a AAA-affiliate, as the contract with the Oakland As expired this year.  And now it's true!  The River Cats web site already has the Giants logo branded at the top right corner, along with an announcement in the rolling slides on the home page about the news:

I'm sort of disappointed, as Mr. E and I tend to be American League fans, and it's been so great to see the progress of some River Cats players as they get called up to the As.  Although the multi-purpose Oakland Coliseum isn't a fabulous venue for watching baseball, it's definitely closer and less expensive than AT&T Park, where the Giants play.

Some folks in Sacramento perceive this transition as an improvement, but I'm not so sure.  Let's hope the new affiliation doesn't change the overall game experience at Raley Field.
