    Five years from now, unless fans and the city's leadership mount an intense effort to save the Lowell Spinners, I would not be the least bit surprised if Lowell no longer has a minor-league baseball team playing at LeLacheur Park. In spite of the Spinners popularity, there are behind-the-scenes maneuvers in play that could well spell the end of a glorious quarter century of minor-league ball in the city -- the longest uninterrupted and most lucrative stretch of professional baseball in a checkered history that dates back nearly 150 years.
