Ballpark Digest has been tracking the changes and rumors.  They now hint that at Wilmington as an affiliate.  I'd guess High-A, so Low-A for Fredericksburg.

They also suggest that Frederick may be safe, and may end up as the O's AA affiliate, with Aberdeen at High-A and Delmarva at Low-A.  Could be bad news for Bowie.

Wilmington?  Who in Washington would follow Wilmington?

:couch:

Just kidding.  How do Wilmington and Frederick compare as stadiums?  Wilmington is a much larger city, so you'd think AA for the O's and Frederick as Low A for the Nats would make some sense, especially with Frederick's proximity to Hagerstown.  Even Frederick as the Nats High A and F-burg as Low A makes some sense since Frederick is close to Harrisburg.  Geographically, this would align Delaware and the Bay with the Os, and VA and west and south of DC with the Nats.
