National League East

1. Washington Nationals

Another managerial change could have a negative impact, but this is their best time to finally make a World Series run.

2. New York Mets

Their rotation stacks up against the best in baseball if they all remain healthy.

3. Atlanta Braves

All of that surplus talent in the minors are ready to make their debuts throughout the 2018 season.

4. Philadelphia Phillies

A couple free agent signings along with their top minor league talent could have them sneaking up in the standings in the NL East.

5. Miami Marlins

Another fire sale has the fan base reeling and wondering when will it finally stop.
