San Antionio may drop affiliation with Mariners

from MySA.com: Missions' affiliation open for discussion

The Seattle Mariners in San Antonio era may be over.

Missions president Burl Yarbrough said Friday the club has filed paperwork with Major League Baseball to allow it to talk to other big-league organizations.

The team's agreement with the Mariners expired at the end of this season. The Missions have been affiliated with Seattle since 2001, after 24 years with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

"We can start talking with people (today)," Yarbrough said. "We can talk to any other clubs looking for a Double-A team, and we haven't ruled out the Mariners."

Three other big-league organizations are looking for a Double-A affiliate -- San Diego, Arizona and the Chicago Cubs.

 "They have been told that the Mariners don't have any interest in winning at Double-A," said a source close to the situation who did not want to be identified. "They're just interested in developing players."
