It isn't going to take much to win that division. 83 wins will probably get the job done. The Dodgers are capable of winning it now that they have Ramirez, Blake, and a healthy Nomar. I'd say it is a coin toss between them and the D'backs. Personally, I'd rather see the D'backs get in because they'd be more dangerous in a playoff series with Haren and Webb than the Dodgers would be.

It makes me laugh how bad the NL is. Manny comes over and is hitting a HR practically every day now. He has probably seen more fastballs in the last 2 weeks than he did the previous 2 months in the AL. Casey Blake is a superstar there too. Is it me or has the NL somehow gotten even worse than they were last season?

No, probably as opposed to hoping to win, before. Their confidence is on the rise.

I wish Torre were managing the Brewers, it'd be a whole different look in the NL Central!

Ain't that the truth. Ned Yost makes Jerry Manuel seem like a baseball sage.
