I will be proposing permanent divisions for the upcoming season. I have found no redeeming qualities in having divisions shuffle around for the past two seasons. I think permanent divisions will bring back some rivalries which, I believe, were developing in our first 3-years of static division play.

Geography-based divisions is my preference:

Maryland/Virginia (or DMV)
MoCo Foes (MD)
Wacker Drive Bleacher Bums (VA)
Maryland Wolfdogs (MD)
Turtle Soup (VA)

Metro-North (that's the train line up to Hartford, correct?)
Eastside Bombers (NY)
The King's Men (NY)
Hartford Hornets (CN)
TBD

New England
Tater Tots (ME)
Ugly Ducklings (MA)
Auburn E-Claries (MA)
Greensboro Gunners (MA)

West Coast
Lincoln Lumberjacks (CA)
SB Sluggers (CA)
Walla Walla Wallaby (WA)
TBD

We would have to force Marcos' team into either Metro or West depending upon our final owner. Or we could just make his ownership conditional upon moving to another part of the country. Floridians screw everything up.

Without any changes, these are the 2018 divisions:

Foes
Bombers
Sluggers
King's Men

Tots
Soup
E-Claires
Wallaby

Bums
Ducklings
Hornets
Wolfdogs

Jacks
Gunners
TBD
Marcos' Team

Sounds like the Soup are afraid of having the Wallaby in their division!

Well, seeing as how I got stuck with two super-teams in my division this year...anything would an improvement!

After last week's nail-biter, you got that right.

It only goes as far as New Haven. You've got to take Amtrak to get to Hartford.

Thanks, George.

I think I'll still let the champs pick division names regardless of how we go with it, so the geographic names only have relevance as far as grouping owners.
