Just a thought - I wonder if at some point it would be worth swapping affiliates with the Chi Sox.  Charlotte is a bit closer to us and I think NC is theoretically Nats / Os territory.  As for the Chicago, the distance is probably a little less to Rochester.  I'll guess Charlotte is more of a transportation hub, so it probably is more functional for Chicago.  Better weather, too.

I doubt the Sox would be interested.  They've deliberately chosen to have their low-A through AAA affiliates in a pretty small area in the southeast:  Kannapolis, Winston-Salem, Birmingham, Charlotte.  They've had those four teams for 20 years now, which is almost unheard-of stability, especially given what just happened with MiLB.
