Trade negotiations between the US and Canada have improved just in time for Marauders merchandise to freely be exported across the continent. Mexico is a bit more distant, hoping for a better performance from their Sombreros next season.
This new league for peace has been holding up so far, as the health of NAFTA continues to improve, albeit slowly. The future of this world is looking good, with 3 seasons to go until judgement day.
It was rumored that Canada offered a bet to the US where the winner of the World Series would get premium control of untapped oil reserves in Alaska. However, the United States declined, preferring traditional negotiation.

1. Kansas City Stockade
2. Minnesota Maulers
3. St. Louis River Runners
4. Milwaukee Bruisers
No surprise here. The Stockade will clean house once again.
1. New York Zoo
2. Philadelphia Scavenger Moths (wild card)
3. Boston Flowers
4. Pittsburgh Pistoleers
A division of haves (New York, Philadelphia) and have nots (Boston, Pittsburgh). This year, I think the Zoo finish on top.
1. Charlotte Colonials
2. Florida Sizzlers (wild card)
3. Atlanta Crackers
4. San Juan Sluggers
...what? At least it's not as self-serving as picking myself to win, like last season.
1. Vancouver Sasquatch
2. Seattle Metropolitans
3. Oakland Renegades (team #6000)
4. San Francisco Redskins
Okay, this year, I'm listening to orrdc and tossing San Fran into the cellar. Sasquatch stomp this division flat.
1. Toronto Toros
2. Montreal Marauders (wild card)
3. Chicago Red Devils
4. Detroit Faith
Don't like it? Blame Canada! New ace Edwin Graves allows Toronto to squeak past Montreal for the division title.
1. Cincinnati Lumberjacks
2. Cleveland Inferno
3. Washington D.C. Senators
4. Baltimore Blizzard
I could pick any random order for this division and it could feasibly happen. All of these teams are looking for their first ever .500 season.
1. Houston Honey Badgers
2. Oklahoma City Kingfishers (wild card)
3. Mexico City Sombreros
4. Texas Armadillos
The Kingfishers stole this one from the Honey Badger on a tiebreak last season. Don;t expect Stone Angle to allow that to happen again.
1. San Diego Aztecs
2. Arizona RainMakers
3. Los Angeles Original Gangsters
4. Honolulu Big Kahuna's
Hey, sorry Arizona, but there's only two wild cards. The defending champion Aztecs grab the crown, while the apostrophe holds down Honolulu.

We're in the stretch run of Season 1 right now. Let's see what the situation is in each division.
The Kansas City Stockade (78-63) are running away with this one, holding a 14 game lead over the St. Louis River Runners (64-77). Milwaukee (59-82) and Minnesota (56-85) have been bruised and mauled all season. Better luck next season!
Philadelphia (91-50) and New York (91-50) have wreaked havoc on the entire AL this season. An ALDS clash is predestined between these two, barring an absolute collapse by the 5 seed in the playoffs. Pittsburgh (67-74) and Boston (53-88) are dreaming of better days.
The Charlotte Colonials (77-64) have brought out their muskets and taken control of the rabid AL South. The commissioner's Florida Sizzlers (70-71) have disappointed this season and their playoff hopes are slim at best. Atlanta (64-77) and San Juan (61-80) are being left in the dust.
The powerful Vancouver Sasquatch (83-58) have taken control of a tight AL West race with their rivals the Seattle Metropolitans (78-63). It's highly probable that both will make the playoffs, so the two might just get to settle the score in the ALDS. Oakland (66-75) and San Francisco (62-79) are currently embarrassing the fans in Northern California.
Fear Canada! The Montreal Marauders (91-50) have a commanding lead on the division, but the Toronto Toros (73-68) are still in the wild card hunt. The Chicago Red Devils (71-70) and Detroit Faith (69-72) should make it a tight race for the NL North's silver medal.
All we know for sure is that one mediocre team is going to make the playoffs from this division. Cincinnati (67-74) and Cleveland (65-76) will have a hot rivalry going this season, but it’s not going to be pretty. Washington D.C. (51-90) and Baltimore (40-101) might not understand how the game of baseball works.
The Honey Badger don’t care, he takes the NL South title. The Houston Honey Badgers (91-50) currently lead, but the Oklahoma City Kingfishers (87-54) are not making it easy for the internet meme to take what he wants. The Texas Armadillos (74-67) are still in the hunt for a wild-card berth as well, and the Mexico City Sombreros (65-76)…well…they have good enchiladas.
The Arizona RainMakers (87-54) have surprised by taking an 8 game lead over the wild card contending San Diego Aztecs (79-62). Maybe next, they’ll actually make rain appear in Arizona! Los Angeles (66-75) and Honolulu (60-81) are meanwhile floundering somewhere offshore.
