Anyways, I think the Dodgers are the favorite in a wide open division, but mostly because of their deep farm system. Arizona does as well, but they don't have the pitching.
Arizona should be a really good team in one-two years. Furcal was a nice pickup, however the only way I see another team winning the division is if the Dodgers get the injury bug again. I dont see anything great about the padres other than old catchers.
