 National League West:

We see the top slots in the NL West ending up in a pretty close race.  The San Francisco Giants received six of the ten first place votes, the Lost Angeles Dodgers three, and the Arizona Diamondbacks got one. The Dodgers had more support for the number two slot, but again, the Diamondbacks are projected to win one more game – and to be only two games behind the Giants.  The San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies are not projected to be in contention, but those top three slots we project to be within three games of one another. A tight race, and a lot of fun to watch. All three teams improved over the offseason, though in different ways. There’s always the even year prediction for the Giants, as well, which might have pushed them over the top.

San Francisco Giants – 89
Los Angeles Dodgers – 86
Arizona Diamondbacks – 87
San Diego Padres – 73
Colorado Rockies – 71

    Hahahahahaha Indians and Tigers the same at 84, ahahahaha no!

    Tigers are going to win 91 games, the Tribe will win 82, Royals are going to tumble, their magic trick has been exposed and they are a weaker team this year, 87. Tigers are going to win the division.
    Also, without Hunter the Twins aren’t going to break 80, the Sox might surprise people and do it.

      I suppose that opinion ha snothing to do with being a Tigers fan (lol) We’ll see… we’ll come back later in the season and see what happens… as we all know, it could be nearly anything.
