Here's another thought...what about Page, AZ, Farmington, NM, or Cortez/Durango, CO? Roughly the same size of Price and would really help tie St. George in.

Well, it looks like the St. George RoadRunners aren't done yet; a new ownership group has bought the team, which will be fielded for at least one more year. Here is the link:

I'm beginning to sense this, too. Whenever I hear things about minor league owners (in any sport) looking to sell, it's usually a desperate act, hence the title.

However, the 'Runners are doing...
