    Nats i agree with Giants maybe number to Tim took a huge step back last year. Dodgers i haven't a clue who is in there rotation..... Kershaw Becket then who? Braves seems questionable as do the phillies.

      The Dodgers got Zack Grienke, so I think with him and Kershaw at the top, those two could make a huge difference. Yes, Lincecum is an enigma. I'm thinking he'll be back to "normal" this season, but that's a big "if." The Phillies have Halliday, Lee, & Hamels at the top. Halladay should be healthy this year, and if Lee can get some run support, you know Hamels will be good. I agree the Braves are questionable, but those guys always seem to come up with pitching! Kimbrel at the back of that bullpen sure gives them some credibility.

        Lincecum is in a contract year, and the Giants will give him every opportunity to have a great season. If he does, the Giants will be VERY hard to beat in the West.

        The Dodger staff could be very good....or pretty mediocre.

        Nats is solid. If Strasburg is really let of his chain, look out!

          In no order:

          Giants
          Nationals
          Phillies
          Braves
          Dodgers

          Cardinals might have a sneaky good rotation.

          "No matter how great you were once upon a time — the years go by, and men forget,” - W. A. Phelon in Baseball Magazine in 1915. “Ross Barnes, forty years ago, was as great as Cobb or Wagner ever dared to be. Had scores been kept then as now, he would have seemed incomparably marvelous.”

            When did they move to the NL?
            The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

                    Hey, he's just flying his own flag.
                    They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

                      do you think they let stras of the chain?

                      I think he should pitch more but if I was the nats I would still have him skip 3-4 starts so that he gets to about 190 IP. that would be an intelligent Progression from 160.
                      I now have my own non commercial blog about training for batspeed and power using my training experience in baseball and track and field.

                        1. WAS - Young and loaded
                        2. LAD - A few question marks, but agruably best 1-2 punch in the game
                        3. SFG - If Linecum pitches like himself then they are #1
                        4. PHI - Trio of Halladay-Hamels-Lee is still potent
                        5. ATL - Already good staff gets better when Beachy returns
                        Rest in Peace Jose Fernandez (1992-2016)

                          Jordan Zimmermann also had TJ surgery. Let's see how they handled him
                          2009: 16 games, 91 innings and then surgery
                          2010: 7 game, 31 innings
                          2011: 26 games, 161 innings
                          2012: 32 games, 195 innings


                          Now Strasburg
                          2010: 12 games, 68 innings and TJ surgery
                          2011: 5 games, 24 innings
                          2012: 28 games, 159 innings

                          I'd expect a healthy Strasburg to start 30+ games and throw close to 200 innings



                          As for my top 5 NL staffs?
                          Using projected WAR
                          5. Dodgers 15.5
                          4. Giants 16
                          3. Cardinals 16.3
                          1. Phillies 16.5
                          1. Nationals 16.5
