Redbirds to be sold to St. Louis Cardinals - Memphis Business Journal:

Redbirds to be sold to St. Louis Cardinals - Memphis Business Journal:: "The St. Louis Cardinals, the Memphis Redbirds Baseball Foundation and Blues City Baseball have officially announced the signing of a non-binding letter of intent to begin the process of the Cardinals purchasing the Memphis Redbirds franchise from the Memphis Redbirds Baseball Foundation.

If it goes through, the deal would follow what Dave Chase, president of baseball operations for the Memphis Redbirds, called a growing trend of major league baseball teams buying minor league affiliates."

... The Redbirds will soon be owned by the Redbirds. Huh?
