...the Somerset Patriots of the independent Atlantic League could become a Yankees farm club.  If that occurs, the Thunder could be squeezed out, too.  Minor-league officials spoke to NJ Advance Media about the possible changes, and requested anonymity because they aren’t authorized to speak publicly about the plans. 
“The Yankees aren’t going to have two minor-league teams in New Jersey,” a Thunder official told NJ Advance Media…

Moving the affiliate from Trenton to Somerset would be a good way to keep baseball white.

Trenton makes, the Yankees take.

that Patriots owner has been a BFF of Yankees brass for decades, fwiw

Thought this was Somerset, MA for a second and I was hoping favorite son Jerry Remy would intervene!

If the Yankees pull up stakes in Trenton, someone else will quickly move in.
