Baseball Preview NL EastWashington Nationals:

All I have to say is, sit back and witness baseball the way it should be played. Kids playing a kids game managed by one of the greats. Great young talent and hard workers throughout the club. The sky is the limit for the Nats.

Atlanta Braves:

The Braves may now have the best outfield in baseball after acquiring the Upton brothers. B.J. and Justin to mix in with Jason Heyward. They are losing Chipper but have some great young studs and role players looking to make a name. They won’t make the playoffs though because of a tough schedule and won’t be feasting on lackluster teams like other divisions.

Philadelphia Phillies:

The Phillies are like the Yankees except without the injuries. Age will be a factor in a good and bad way. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were exceptional team or fall off. I am keeping them in the middle of the pack because they may be sellers come July.

New York Mets:

The Mets have David Wright, that is the only thing going for them. They host the All Star Game. Wheeler and Harvey are young studs that shouldn’t be rushed this year. Think future seasons people.

Miami Marlins:

The Marlins need a new owner, plain and simple. The guy just builds the team up and ships them out just to do it again. They did it after World Series wins in 1997 and 2003 and they did it after getting their jeweled ballpark. Oh, and they even have opening day tickets on Groupon…You got to think Giancarlo Stanton is using this season as his free agency audition.
