With some new owners, it might be time for a re-alignment. I've put 2022 record & location next to each team. Also, see attached map.

Proposal #1

North-east
Greensboro Gunners 123-81-6 (Grafton, MA)
Nature Boys 105-89-16 (Fairhaven, MA)
Auburn Smashers 82-114-14 (Auburn, MA)
Hartford Duckies 77-120-13 (Hartford, CT)

DMV+
Turtle Soup 103-100-7 (Ashburn, VA)
Eastside Bombers 94-101-15 (New York, NY)
Maryland Wolfdogs 88-115-7 (Rockville, MD)
Whack Bums 53-145-12 (South Riding, VA)

SEC+
Branson Pirates 134-66-10 (Branson, MO)
Abdominal Snowmen 120-82-8 (Columbia, SC)
Bader Tots 93-106-11 (Charleston, SC)
Soto Forever 91-113-6 (Pittsburgh, PA)

West
Lincoln Lumberjacks 135-66-9 (Oakland, CA)
Slugs 2.0 129-73-8 (Los Angeles, CA)
Screaming Firehawks 104-98-8 (Eugene, OR)
Uggla's Ducklings 70-132-8 (Seattle, WA)

Pros: This nerfs the west a little bit - a good thing. Each division is fairly balanced except DMV. But that one's always a crapshoot anyway.

Sporty Josh's Pittsburgh is a bit of a shoehorn, but he's got connections to South Carolina (he's an alum and is responsible for the Gamecocks coaching tree).

I approve. And I didn't realize we were down to one "Brad." Quite a decline from the 6 or 8 we used to have.

For scheduling purposes… I propose to use their hypothetical place (based on winning %) had they been in these new divisions last year.

I'm fine with that. The competitive balance part of the schedule has limited impact. And I'm all for making your job easier :-)
