NL East: With the rest of the NL East in transition, the Washington Nationals may have the easiest path of anyone to a division title this year. The focus in D.C. is on the postseason.
AL East: The Orioles were uneasily quiet while the Blue Jays and Red Sox shook things up . Deep pitching and the return of injured regulars, though, make the O’s better than their longshot status.
NL Central: Though the Chicago Cubs made the biggest buzz in baseball’s offseason, it’ll be tough to overtake the Cardinals – and maybe even the Pirates and Brewers.
