National League East

Last year, there was a chaning of the guard in the National League East as the Washington Natoinals took the title with the Atlanta Braves second and the Phillies third.  As we look through the transactions of this off season, it seems as if that list could remain the same.  The Shuffle Indiex does not predict whether injuries will recover, so it gives no credence to a resurgence in Philadelphia, something we personally wish for as fans.  We think, from a personal standpoint, that the Phils will be better than what they've shown over the last year and won't be surprised if they reshuffle the shuffle to get to the top.  That will mean good years from players such as Chase Utley, Ryan Howard, and more.  Could happen, but if you look at things on paper, and use last year as your guide, it states that the new guard last year could again be the one this season.  We hope not.

And down south in Miami, well, at least after this season there can't be a fire sale.  Oh, wait a minute, they still have Giancarlo Stanton.  We might have to rethink that.  Can't help but think it's good that Houston went to the American League, cause if they hadn't, the bottom of the National League East and Central would sure have looked bad.

National League Central

The Reds are for real with a pitching staff that, for the most part, goes under the radar.  Well, not including Aroldys Chapman, who usually breaks the radar with those 100 plus heaters.  We think the cast of Votto and Bruce, plus Arroyo, Cueto, Lators, and more will be more than enough to hold off the Cardinals and Brewers.  That is, of course, if neither of them decides at the last minute to add Kyle Lohse to pitching staffs, particularly with the Brewers, that could use a good veteran starter.  We actually think that if Milwaukee did that, they could contend for a wild card.  Without it, they could finish behind the Pirates.

We still think the Pirates are short in the pitching department, at least until those young guns in the pitching roster get out of Triple A, and the Cubs.  Well, they are the Cubs, and it will take Theo a few more years to turn around that car, no matter how much whining from the backseat fans make management wish they could do that right now.

National League West

To us, this looks like the class division of baseball this season, with the last year champs, San Francisco Giants, still at the head of the class.  Best catcher in baseball, one of the best pitching staff, even without Tim Lincecum at his best.  But right behind them, comes the two contenders we think will garner the wild card spots; the Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks.  And if Chase Headley can get healthy and come close to repeating his season of last year, the Padres could make a race of it for a wild card spot, too, although they start the season at a significant back seat compared to the top three.

It's gonna be a long year in Colorado, having to play each of those squads nearly twenty times a piece.
