Good point. I still found it disturbing that people were so willing to part with him. The run we were on was because of the pitching, not in spite of it.

The Nats run away with the division again this year, this time a little later. The Braves make some noise in the division and league while the Marlins have false starts all year mainly due to their starting pitching but their offense and bullpen are in the top 5 in the league. The Mets continue to struggle producing runs and have down years from major bullpen pieces (Salas, Blevins and Reed), just missing the postseason after a loss in a one-game playoff with the Cardinals.
Cubs dominate again while the Pirates show a lot of fight for most of the year but fade again due to lack of resources to improve the team. The Cardinals have another winning season although their starting pitching struggles.
Cardinals 86-76 - WC
This is the year all the innings catch up Mad-Bum and he goes under the knife. Cueto also has a down year and they struggle to stay above 500 most of the year. The Rockies are the surprise team this year with a lot of luck and health with their pitching. They ultimately sneak into the postseason in the last week.
Rockies 87-75 - WC
Yankees have a monster offense and their bullpen carries them to the division crown.
Red Sox 90-72 - WC
Blue Jays 86-76
Tigers - WC

They have a bunch of solid mid rotation guys, but mostly guys that put the ball in play, which is dangerous there, and to be honest, its a lot of the same faces. Jon Gray looks like he could really take a step forward, but not super optimistic on some of the young guys they're really pushing ahead to Coors.
I see them being good, not quite playoff ready.
Similarly, I like the Fish (I always seem to like the Fish). I also think the Braves have a chance to be real pesky as that lineup is goooood. I think this is the year the Pirates go backwards and they have to figure out how to not let the franchise descend into the depths they previously were in.
The Giants have overachieved based on the names there for a while, and I think its finally getting to the point where its going to tilt the other way. And I don't like the Cardinals to continue to just keep winning because they're them. That pitching staff has collectively fallen apart quick, and behind Martinez, I don't love any of them. So a little changing of the guard in the NL I think is in store:
NYM 87 W
MIA 85 W
TOR 86 W
KC 88 W
NLDS: Cubs over Mets; Nats over Dodgers
ALDS: Cleveland over Jays; Astros over Sawx
NLCS: Cubs over Nats
ALCS: Astros over Indians
WS: Cubs over Astros
