The Sacramento River Cats are ending their ties with the Oakland Athletics. The Triple-A team had been with the A’s for 15 years. It is believed that the popularity of the San Francisco Giants and their fan base would be better than what the current situation is with the A’s, despite the already high attendance numbers.
So in essence, this was a move by the River Cats to jump on the Giants bandwagon and abandon the A’s. At least, that’s how some people on Twitter are in reacting to this news. Some of the language is NSFW.
Now what am I going to do with my River Cats cap? Maybe I’ll just call you the Rivercats out of spite.

I can’t remember being so upset about a minor league team moving…now I know how Homer Simpson felt when the Isotopes moved to Albuquerque.
