Nationals extend relationship with Class AAA Syracuse

The Washington Nationals today announced the signing of a two-year Player Development Contract with the Syracuse Chiefs of Class AAA International League.

"The decision to extend our Syracuse affiliation was easy for us," Nationals team president Stan Kasten said in a statement. "We have greatly enjoyed our affiliation with the Chiefs and their fans, both of whom will discover in the coming years there is another wave of exciting, young talent in our player development pipeline."

In almost two seasons, the Chiefs are 141-131 since aligning with the Nationals. Syracuse is one of five clubs in the International League with a winning record the past two years.

So much for the dream of putting our AAA team in a state capital like we did with our AA team.

Too bad Richmond lost its AAA team. Would have been the perfect fit.
