This is John Palmer osu with your NL east preview on foxsports.com. One year ago all the buzz was about the Miami Marlins in their big offseason of spending Mark Buehrle Jose Reyes. All the cast of thousands. None of them are there are now and the question NL -- now is really weather will be the nationals or the Braves taking away the flag should be a huge surprise if any team besides those two. And that being in the NL east champion. We'll see how the rotations. Oppose one another I think the nationals have the edge going in Stephen Strasburg. No innings limit this year a lot of talk out of nationals camp that he should be able to throw. 200 innings and of course the nationals also got veteran Dan Haren one of the better fourth or fifth starter we could -- -- in Major League Baseball. The -- is of course need to find a way to replace Chipper Jones two men on and off the field standpoint what's he probably went to Arizona in the big trade to get Justin Upton. Putting together one of the best outfield in all Major League Baseball. In third place would probably say the Philadelphia Phillies less -- able to find the fun of youth they really have been the same team that we saw there. Dominating the division for so many years with a Ryan Howard and Chase Utley. Getting older we'll see if the additions of two young Michael young and Delmon Young can add a little bit of flair to the lineup. And of course the New York Mets we'll see if they're able to make something of a move although I kinda doubt this is their year they didn't give Michael -- they did of course resigned David Wright -- long term. But it appears the New York Mets are still a number of years away from contending in the NL east.
