Ok, so here is my take on the NL....I promise you that this will be a mess (as I have no idea about the NL)....
NL East- This will be a tight division. The difference between 2, 3, and 4 will be less than 8 games.
Braves- Why not? It seems as though they can have anyone pitch for them, and pitch well.
Mets- Their lineup is fairly potent. They have speed and power. They have Pedro. This takes the burden off Glavine. Pedro and Glavine will help the young guys along.
Florida- Better than the Phillies.
Phillies- Leiber is not the answer...They never seem to get it quite right.
Montreal- Sorry, I mean DC or Washington or...What I really mean is LAST PLACE.
Cards- Why shouldn't they win the division again?
Chicago- The should have better health luck pitching-wise this year. Nomar will break out. They lost Sammy, but that might not be such a bad thing.
Houston- Some good arms, but Beltran helped them a ton last year. His absence will be felt.
Pittsburgh- Young team. Guy with a mullet. They should move up a notch this year.
Milwaukee- They will lose their best starter in a long time at mid-season. LAST PLACE.
Giants- Thanks to the fall of the Dodgers...How many IBBs will Bonds get this year when he shows up to camp a little older, a little slower, and having lost 10 pounds of "water weight".
San Diego- Young team. Solid team. They lost Wells, but they'll be good.
Los Angeles- From first to third. Let Beltre go...I just don't think they're going to be good.
Rockies- Still bad..
D-Backs- Lost Randy Johnson...Could it be that they lose more games this year? LAST PLACE.
