The Traveling Wilkes Barres?

Must be Pennsylvania didn't get the Tea Party memo. The Quakers plan to build the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Yankees a new field, $40 million smackers worth -- half from the hydrofracking state taxpayers. Hmm. Whatever happened to that hardcore conservative governor, reducing entitlements? Oh well... Kids don't need school lunches. Play ball!

But it means the Yankee 2012 Triple A farm team -- aka Brackman- Golson Overdrive -- could barnstorm for the entire season... Imagine: The team that has no home. Or, they could temporarily kick the tires on Ottawa, Rochester... even Syracuse?

Yes, could it happen? Or Utica? Or Watertown? Oswego? Bingohamton? Where is our state Department of Economic Bribery? Can't we deliver a few $500 handshakes?

How long have you been waiting to use that pun? It must be a relief to finally have it in a headline.
