Next Triple-A MiLB Team

And the next vacancy is assumed to be left by a city promoted.  I'd say make Tampa triple-A, but whatevs'.

Is Monterrey Mexico the next most appreciative Triple-A camp for MiLB???  More interleague-like play with the Mexican League?

Of side note:  it's pretty cool that Atlanta's AAA club is in suburbia Atlanta.
If my Reds parted way with regional Louisville for whatever reason, what place would be a good landing spot.  Could a promotion of the city of Dayton be in order?

For about a decade now, Canada has been absent of MLB.  I genuinely wonder if Montreal snobbery is a thing and if they'd be very much less interested in sporting a minor league franchise for the Jays.  Then Toronto's current TripA team could free the city of Buffalo up for one of two MLB expansion team affiliates.  I'm sure Vancouver would be fine with taking up the on-deck circle.

San Antonio is barely a hundred miles away from the Rangers tripA club in suburban Austin.  Maybe the 'Stros tripA affiliation in California could just come to Alamo territory?  For now, it dubA Padres turf.  Actually already, the Sky Sox are picking up and moving to old Dodger and Missions club turf.

Looking up at the map, I spy Boise.  Could they get a major promotion as the one with Dayton I got all imaginary about?  Maybe not feasible.  I'm not sure.  I know Dayton is a hard ticket.  To buy.  Sold out a lot.  Logistically it's a pain, but Honolulu and Anchorage could get something.

My solution would be a West Coast named franchise share with Portland.  Portland, along with Monterrey are no doubt the biggest gapes with Canada.  Is Portland the true trolly snob?  They're missing top-notch pro hockey, too.  They could use a West Coast Truckers branded franchise in those two minor-league heavy sports farms.  While Greater Portland and Oregon have the suburban Hillsboro Hops A-ball club, we could spice a promotion up a notch with a tag team city agreement for a bigger league developing team.  Go Portland.
