dcates-You're right that the western states have some great players.  The problem is none of them can really compete by themselves, other than California which is so loaded we divided it in 2 (which some native Californian's wish to do anyways!) for this season.

The most feasible combo is to do Washington/Oregon/Idaho.  I was wanting to minimize the combination of states to see how individual states will compete with one another.

The four corners combo is one I've considered as well, it's just outside of Kiner & Vern Stephens, there aren't many great hitters.  Colorado does have Roy Halladay & Goose Gossage, but you have to realize, almost every other state I filled with deadballer's.  Look at Ohio that just won a league title!
