Although not top heavy, the NL East is as deep as any division in baseball from 1 to 5.
Braves: They made a huge move in adding Hudson but they have some major questionmarks in their lineup (Raul Mondesi and Brian Jordan?) and I have serious doubts about Smoltz withstanding the grind of a full season in the rotation.
Marlins: They have as balanced as team as anybody in the division and they still managed to win 83 games last season despite their injuries and lack of offensive production. Leiter was a solid signing considering it was only for one year, I think he can rack up double digit wins and post a sub 4 ERA at Pro Player.
Mets: I love their offense, but I am very skeptical about their pitching. Pedro, Glavine, Benson and Zambrano all have questionmarks surrounding them.
Phillies: Their starting pitching is solid but lacks an Ace. They have this young kid Ryan Howard that can hit the cover off the ball but they have no room for him because Thome is blocking his path and they are set at the corner OF spots.
Expos: Decent rotation with Hernandez, Armas, Ohka, Loaiza and Day. Jim Bowden overpaid for the services of Castilla and Guzman. I am a big fan of Brad Wilkerson though and I think he is due for a breakout year.
