Average Distance From Majors To Affiliates: National League West

I’ve been playing around with some small projects in my spare time, including the one you see below.  The distance between a major league club and its affiliates has always interested me, even more so in the wake of some of the recent rehab assignments of stars like John Smoltz and Manny Ramirez.

Earlier this week, I stumbled upon this web site, with maps that provide a visual image for those distances.  Since I’m all about boring stuff, I decided to take a look at the raw distances, division by division.  The first division, the National League West, is presented below(billsportsmaps has created maps for most, not all, major league teams; Arizona and Colorado are missing from this installment).  They are ordered from shortest to longest average distance.
