I was surprised to see the Brewers and the Cardinals so far back from the Cubs.

I like it but I was little surprised.

Looks like it's basically in line with Fangraphs on the Cubs (94), but looking at it versus them on the Brewers (78 on Fangraphs) and the Cardinals (88) - it's probably more based on last year's results than current projections.

With NL playoff contenders, I'd go...

Dodgers - under 96.5
Cubs - over 94.5
Nationals - over 92.5
Cardinals - under 85.5
D'backs - under 85.5
Brewers - under 85.5
Rockies - over 82
Giants - over 81.5
Mets - over 81

It will be interesting to see how the Giants do this year with their new impact players.

Keeping Bumgarner off the dirt bike is at least worth a few wins. It's a pretty old team overall, but they added some guys who were used being franchise players to a nucleus that's won some ballgames over the years. Outside of LA at the top, there should be a pretty good battle for next-best out West.

I think they will surprise some people this year. However, like you said, the Dodgers are just loaded and look to be the class of the division.
