NL West reverting to awfulness, like in 2005

Remember when all the experts and bloggers, including us, were predicting that the NL West was the best division in baseball? We also predicted the Cardinals to suck too, but we were also wrong. Well, everyone was wrong. To be fair, the Rockies have suffered due to injuries (although Matt Holliday and Troy Tulowitzki are back), the Padres can’t hit, and neither can the Giants, and the Dodgers have suffered by hiring Ned Coletti as their GM. Only the young and inconsistent Diamondbacks are at .500 right now, and Eric Byrnes being injured does not help at all.

Diamondbacks 40 40 .500 24-15 16-25 3-7 Lost 3
Dodgers 37 42 .468 2.5 21-19 16-23 6-4 Won 1
Giants 34 46 .425 6 14-24 20-22 4-6 Lost 2
Rockies 32 48 .400 8 20-19 12-29 4-6 Lost 5
Padres 32 49 .395 8.5 21-24 11-25 1-9 Lost 6

Looks like they all have one thing in common: They are not good on the road, and in the Giants case, the Giants suck more at home and happen to have the best record of everyone in the NL West on the road. A lot of other factors too, but we can call the NL West the “NL Worst” again.

Also, who put money on the thought that Chan Ho Park would be around longer than players like Brad Fullmer and Richard Hidalgo?
