Who’s the best in the West?
The Rockies are getting attention in discussions on the NL West.
The Rockies and Dodgers are being picked to win the NL West.
Have the Rockies done enough to deserve the respect?
How do you look at the rest of the NL West?
– Rockies were wise to just fine tune in the off-season. They have a quality rotation, and a lineup that should be even better.
– Dodgers don’t have a No. 1 or a No. 5 starter. Bellasario’s visa problems will delay his availability when the season starts.
– Giants can dominate with their rotation and have a solid bullpen. They don’t, however, have the big bats in middle of lineup.
– Diamondbacks can’t afford a rotation that doesn’t have a healthy Brandon Webb, and the defense is shaky.
– Padres are trying to regroup and figure out a direction. They are one team in division with no hope.
