I’ve finished up my National League team previews, and to recap:
NL East: Philadelphia Phillies
NL Central: Chicago Cubs
NL West: Los Angeles Dodgers
Wild Card: St. Louis Cardinals
I think that the National League is really wide open after the two elite teams, the Phillies and Dodgers. I think that the Wild Card and Central divisions are going to be a huge pennant race down to the end. I think that the Braves, Marlins, Brewers, Cubs, Cardinals, and even the Rockies are all going to be fighting for essentially 2 playoff spots, and injuries and savvy roster moves will be the difference.
Tomorrow’s post will be about how I think the playoffs will play out, and my choices for the major awards for the 2010 season. Opening Day is this Sunday night, and I’m definitely looking forward to it.
