Joy in Mudville

Posted By on Mon, Jul 31, 2006 at 7:14 AM

We see little reason for joy in the Democrat-Gazette's scoop this morning reporting that the Wichita Wranglers baseball team has decided to junk its contract with Wichita in order to move the team to Northwest Arkansas.

Don't get us wrong. It'll be nice for Springdale, the blue-collar part of the Northwest Arkansas quartet of booming cities, to have a pro sports team to offer as recreation for its citizenry.

But if the owners of the Wranglers will break their contract with Wichita, citing "maintenance default and other minor breach," according to the Democrat-Gazette, they will find it convenient someday in the future to stiff Springdale on similar trumped-up "breaches" in order to move to a still more lucrative city.
