Looks like I shouldn't have bothered to add the Phillies.

There's a question, alright.

Honestly I have no idea. The Mets should have trampled everyone in the NL, but they haven't looked good recently, and with a shaky pitching staff, I'm not sure what to expect from them.

I'd like to first see who gets in the playoffs before making my pick. I think you have to go with the hottest team at the time though, because I don't see any other real huge advantages from one team over another.

I love the fact that most of you don't even know who they are ..

baaa...

Best Pitching staff in the NL top to bottom, and some insane momentum rolling into the playoffs.


So, right, first it was anyone who's a fan of an East Coast team is a sheep. Now, it's anyone who doesn't think SD is going to win the NL? Brilliant!

MOOOOOOOOOO!

I will be rooting for Houston if they make it in. I just don't know if they have enough offense to beat the Padres in Round 1 or the Mets in the League Championship Series. :-o

The poll question is poorly worded, nobody wins this. I think that everybody loses the NL pennant except for the Dodgers who stumble into the WS.

If the Astros squeak by into the playoffs, I think they have the best shot just given the strength of their pitching staff.

It's anyone's pennant really. Of course, I'm going to vote for the Dodgers. There are a ton of what-ifs with the Dodgers and they're a rag-tag bunch that somehow puts it all together at certain times. Honestly, picking them to win is like taking a stab in the dark, but I tell ya what, if Maddux, Penny, and Lowe can hold the fort, if Kuo can eat up some solid innings here ane there, if the lead gets into Broxton's and Saito's hands, and if the top of the order continues to hit well, the Dodgers do have a chance.

I believe the Mets have enough firepower, and they'll have to rely on their offense for the most part, to will their way into the Series and the key for them, like the Dodgers, is for their starting pitchers to keep them into the game enough for the Mets' bats and the bullpen to keep rolling.

Picking the Padres is just like pitching the Dodgers. They hit well collectively as a team and they're atrocious when they don't. The difference here is on paper, their pitching staff is better and their bullpen is a proven strength over ours in Chavez Ravine.
