My first jaunt into the National League.
C: Brian McCann (ATL)
McCann headlines a weak catching class in the NL East. He is still a complete catcher and his job his safe with the exit of Jared Saltalamacchia.
1B: Ryan Howard (PHI)
The 2006 NL MVP recovered from a slow start to finish with 47 home runs. He just needs to cut down on strikeouts.
2B: Chase Utley (PHI)
Utley is looking to make up for time he lost last August after suffering a broken wrist. Utley helps the middle of this lineup go.
3B: David Wright (NYM)
Wright is a complete young player. He definitely deserves this spot.
SS: Hanley Ramirez (FLA)
A tough choice over Rollins, but Ramirez will definitely have a great season.
LF: Pat Burrell (PHI)
Look for a strong second half from Pat the Bat. One of the most maddening players from a Phillies fan's perspective.
CF: Carlos Beltran (NYM)
Beltran can still hit, run, and cover ground in New York.
RF: Jeff Francoeur (ATL)
Francoeur has been somewhat inconsistent throughout his career, but looks to stay steady for 2008.
SP: Johan Santana (NYM)
The early favorite for the NL Cy Young Award.
SP: Cole Hamels (PHI)
Hamels headlines a weak rotation and will be called on to deliver by the Phillies.
SP: John Smoltz (ATL)
The ageless Smoltz teams with Hudson for a strong top-two starters in Atlanta.
RP: Billy Wagner (NYM)
Wagner was hit hard at times last year, but still remains a feared closer.
RP: Chad Cordero (WSH)
How many games will Cordero actually get to save? That aside, he remains one of the best relievers out there.
C: Paul LoDuca (WSH)
1B: Mark Teixiera (ATL)
2B: Dan Uggla (FLA)
3B: Chipper Jones (ATL)
SS: Jimmy Rollins (PHI)
LF: Elijah Dukes (WSH)
CF: Shane Victorino (PHI)
RF: Jeremy Hermida (FLA)
SP: Oliver Perez (NYM)
SP: John Maine (NYM)
SP: Tim Hudson (ATL)
RP: Brad Lidge (PHI)
RP: Rafael Soriano (ATL)
How does this one stack up?
