AAA New Bedford 'Whale'-Sox In Our Future?

Not so fast, Little Rhody! A pair of New Bedford, Massachusetts City Councilors want to move the Red Sox AAA affiliate to the town made famous by Herman Melville's Moby Dick. We've already had a New England team named 'The Whalers' (Boston/Hartford), so John Henry and company would need to be a little more creative. The Melvilles? The Ahabs? The Queequegs? One thing for sure, Starbucks will be a big sponsor. And of course, all home team HRs will be accompanied by a "Thar' She Blows!" PA announcement. Maybe Providence isn't such a bad idea after all.
