The NL East projected standings look pretty pathetic. It's hard to believe the WS winner came out of that putrid division.

I would beg to differ. The NL East has quite a bit of talent. I predict 4 out of the 5 teams in that division win over 80 games, with two making it to the playoffs. I personally think the Angels are better than 85 wins and the Indians are not as good as 90 wins. The Tigers should come in last and the Royals could very well take second in the central. The Mariners won't win 78 and the Rays should win more than 89.
