I like the Royals battling for the WC
Angels in the West but their pitching isn't solid, starters or relievers so they are not a lock..Rangers won't win 90
Nats are ready for a World Series. Marlins will be better than last year with players who will play hard.
Central is wide open. I think the Reds will take it.
I have the Dodgers over the Giants. Both over 95 wins.

Brian McCann/Gerald Laird > Wilson Ramos/Kurt Suzuki
Freddie Freeman > Adam LaRoche
Dan Uggla > Danny Espinosa
Chris Johnson < Ryan Zimmerman
Andrelton Simmons < Ian Desmond
Justin Upton > Bryce Harper
BJ Upton < Denard Span
Jason Heyward > Jayson Werth
Nationals Rotation > Braves Rotation
Some of these rankings can be debated, as I just ran right through them quickly. I would like to say though, I've heard on many baseball websites that the Braves' bullpen is the best in baseball.
LA Detective wrote:Totally agree.
In the NL the Braves have questions at 3b and the Dodgers have some questions at the top of their order. Crawford would have to come back real strong or this willl be a weakness for them. Plus chemistry questions but I think they will over come that.
What do you think? the Nats are the are the closest to complete ? I have them the #1 team in MLB right now.
