Brewers extend affiliation with Triple-A Nashville

Still no new stadium, but the Brewers are staying in Nashville:

The Milwaukee Brewers and Nashville Sounds have extended their player development contract for two more seasons through the completion of the 2014 season. The announcement was made jointly today by Brewers President of Baseball Operations – General Manager Doug Melvin and Sounds co-owner Frank Ward.

“We are pleased to extend our working agreement with the Sounds,” said Melvin. “While the current facility and conditions are not totally satisfactory, we remain loyal and are very supportive of the ownership and Frank Ward in his continued efforts to get a much-needed new park. As General Manager of a Major League franchise, I totally believe in this ownership, and if we can get the same support from the city, Nashville will be one of the most desirable franchises in minor league baseball.”

The Sounds have served as the Brewers’ Triple-A affiliate since the start of the 2005 season. In eight seasons as a Brewers affiliate, Nashville has produced five winning records, made the playoffs three times, and captured the 2005 Pacific Coast League title. The Sounds carry a 589-559 record over that stretch.

“We are pleased to continue our relationship with the Brewers,” said Ward. “They are an organization that produces quality major leaguers through their minor league system, and we are looking forward to watching Milwaukee’s next tier of stars continue to develop in Music City.”

The Sounds play their home games at Greer Stadium and are managed by Mike Guerrero.

MLB 2K10 was big step up from what 2K9 was offering, but for this year that isn’t the case. MLB 2K11 adds some minor fretueas like a new fielding system, MLB Today, and a few more, though the overall experience I’ve with this game is good it isn’t up to par with PlayStation 3 s MLB The Show. The one thing I hate about all 2K sports games is that when you play in an online match it tends to have a lag that makes it hard to enjoy the game, all in all this is a good baseball game that is heading in the right direction, but for now needs some work.
