Zach Levine has some reaction from Ed Wade regarding the Triple-A sized hole he needs to fill in the minors.
Our desire is to be in Oklahoma City. We've had some conversations with them and we'll have to see where it goes."
Of course it is. No way Pawtucket and Boston end their relationship, and I can't imagine that Las Vegas is a more attractive option than Oklahoma City. No one wants to see on the transactions list: "Matt Kata placed on 7-Day Disabled List (Chlamydia)." There's hookers everywhere. Nope, no thanks, Las Vegas.
In other good news, Levine says the ValleyCats are expected to remain the Astros' NYPL affiliate.
