2010 NL Standings Projection

New, comments

NL EAST

Philadelphia Phillies - 91 - 71

Atlanta Braves - 86 - 76*

Florida Marlins - 83 - 79

New York Mets - 77 - 85

Washington Nationals - 74 - 88

- This is the Phillies league. Period.

- The Braves will make a solid run, but questions over the back of the bullpen and the effectiveness of Martin Prado, Chipper Jones, and Jason Heyward.

- The Marlins should add a pitcher at the deadline, if not sooner, if they want any chance of competing for the division. 

NL CENTRAL

St. Louis Cardinals - 87 - 75

Milwaukee Brewers - 82 - 80

Chicago Cubs - 78 - 84

Cincinnati Reds - 73 - 89

Houston Astros - 71 - 91

Pittsburgh Pirates - 68 - 94

- Adam Wainwright looked as good as ever in his last start, giving Cardinals fans a sigh of relief with the Brewers and Cubs breathing down their necks. 

- The Brewers and Cubs should battle it out, but it looks like the Cubs will need big contributions from guys with low expectations. (Geovany Soto, Mike Fontenot, Kosuke Fukudome...)

- Aroldis Chapman will give the Reds a reason to hope.

NL WEST

Colorado Rockies - 85 - 77

Arizona Diamondbacks - 83 - 79

San Francisco Giants - 82 - 80

Los Angeles Dodgers - 80 - 82

San Diego Padres - 73 - 89

- The Rockies will need big performances from their pitchers, but it will be a very close race in the NL West this season.

- I see the Dodgers regressing with the lack of a capable ace. And it is not like they can just go out and buy one, considering the team has little to no money at its disposal.
