Atlanta, Florida, Philadelphia, New York, Washington

St. Louis, Chicago, Milwaukee, Houston, Cincinnati

West

Los Angeles, Arizona, San Francisco, Colorado, San Diego

Playoffs:

Los Angeles vs. Atlanta, St. Louis vs. Chicago

NL Championship:

NL Champ:

Atlanta

NL MVP:  Albert Pujols

Sorry Dbacks fans, unless Arizona gets rid of its inconsistencies, it will be hard for them to win the NL West.  If Arizona can maintain a solid bullpen, obtain consistent clutch hitting, and get some luck along the way, they can contend with Los Angeles.  I am just being honest.  It pains to pick the Dodgers first, but the reality is, they are the best in the west right now.  Also watch out for the Giants.  They may surprise some.
