National League West

Los Angeles Dodgers

MVP Cody Bellinger has yet to celebrate his 25th birthday and isn’t a free agent until 2024.

Colorado Rockies

Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado make up the best left side of an infield since Jeter and A-Rod.

San Francisco Giants

Watching games is great no matter how bad the team is thanks to the legendary duo of Kruk and Kuip.

San Diego Padres

How great Fernando Tatis Jr. is going to look at the All Star game next year in the retro jerseys.

Arizona Diamondbacks

The haul of prospects from the Goldschmidt and Greinke trades hopefully indicates that they’ll be out of the desert of mediocrity soon.

NL Central

St. Louis Cardinals

Jack Flaherty’s second half and the invincibility of Yadier Molina.

Milwaukee Brewers

Christian Yelich being the most likely candidate to put up baseball’s 5th ever 40-40 season.

Chicago Cubs

Javier Baez and Kris Bryant aren’t far behind Story and Arenado for best left side of the infield since Jeter and A-Rod.

Cincinnati Reds

Nick Senzel and Hunter Greene’s bright futures soothe the pain of watching Joey Votto’s decline.

Pittsburgh Pirates

Bryan Reynolds and Josh Bell forming a textbook top of the order.

National League East

Atlanta Braves

Their second power hitting, slick fielding, superstar phenom centerfielder in the past twenty years.

Washington Nationals

Are you kidding?

New York Mets

Jacob DeGrom pitching like the second coming of Tom Seaver.

Philadelphia Phillies

Joe Girardi bringing some much needed sanity to a city with pressure-cooker media and a team with big egos.

Miami Marlins

The weather.

American League West

Houston Astros

It may be the worst offseason ever for a pennant winner, but they did still win the pennant.

Oakland Athletics

Matt Chapman continuing the tradition of incredible third basemen in Oakland.

Texas Rangers

Globe Life Field, facing northeast and carpeted with artificial turf, will certainly be interesting if nothing else.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

This generation’s Mickey Mantle, and the best hitting pitcher since Madison Bumgarner/Babe Ruth, whichever you prefer.

Seattle Mariners

It’s never boring with Jerry DiPoto as General Manager.

American League Central

Minnesota Twins

The fact that only one starter failed to hit 20 home runs in a record setting season.

Cleveland Indians

On a serious note, Carlos Carrasco’s clean bill of health, which is bigger than anything between the lines.

Chicago White Sox

The South Sider’s youth movement has this team poised to be a big player in the American League in the next five years.

Kansas City Royals

They’re not the Tigers!

Detroit Tigers

Last time they were this bad (2003), they went to the World Series three years later.

American League East

New York Yankees

Everyone except Aroldis Chapman.

Tampa Bay Rays

The two-team wild card format, especially playing in this division.

Boston Red Sox

This team is too talented to be this mediocre-expect a regression to the mean next year.

Toronto Blue Jays

The 90’s All-Stars reboot (Vlad Jr. , Bo Bichette, and Cavan Biggio) looks promising so far.

Baltimore Orioles

Lamar Jackson.
