AL West - Salem, Tacoma, Vancouver, Anaheim

Salem is the defending division winner from season 10, they have a strong case to repeat but the AL West has long been known for it's shifting power structure. It's been several seasons since any team was able to win back to back division titles and Salem will find themselves in tough against a good Tacoma team looking to regain it's season 6 and 7 form under new owner dman15. Tacoma formerly Fresno only finished four games behind Salem last season and if they can stay healthy they might be able to sneak into that top spot. Anaheim is led by longtime owner RandyRossac who over several seasons in Hometown has led his franchise to one division title. His team seems to be either very competitive and challenge for the division or very inconsistent and struggles throughout the year. This year does have some promise for them and they might have the talent pool to compete. Vancouver has been owned by Primetime since Season 2 he immediately won the division in 3 of his first 4 seasons however its been a turbulent 5 seasons in Vancouver as the team has progressively finished lower and lower in the standings. This could be a bounce back season for them though. Anytime you have a player of Tito Reitsma's ability good things are bound to happen and Vancouver is certainly hoping for a trip back to the good ole' days.
