Just at a glance I wouldn't put the Mets at the top just yet. They may end up there by the end of the year, but I'd take the Phils and Cards over them right now. And why are you ranking the Cards offense so low? Pujols/Rolen/Edmonds are probably the best 3/4/5 in the NL
I think my list would look like this:
5. Dodgers (Assuming everyone stays healthy)
11. Cubs (I don't really like anyone other than D Lee and A Ram, and I personally think D Lee is being overhyped)
14. Nationals (Playing 81 at RFK hurts everybody)
15. Padres (Playing 81 at Petco hurts too)
16. Marlins (I honestly don't really know much about any of these guys, so I automatically have to put them here)
As usual people missed the fact the Brewers scored the 6th most runs in the NL last year and they should be a good bit better this year. Funny how people miss this type of stuff with small market teams.

Cardinals (Tier 1 if Rolen and Spivey both stay healthy which is doubtful) Brewers Mets Braves Cubs Rockies (just because of the park)
Tier 3 Giants (if bonds is fully healthy move to tier 2) Dodgers Arizona Houston Padres Pirates
Tier 4 Nationals Marlins
I like this one best.
The others really show me that the brew crew is being underrated offensively. Even understanding my homer status, they have one of the best young lineups in the game. Carlos Lee is going to fly under the radar again. BTW, the original poster was not even close to what their lineup will be. Actually, where did you get those lineups? A couple of them a incorrect...
