The NL East is still a wide-open race, which is why the Braves are still middle of the pack despite being below .500 on the season. Coming off of a World Series championship run, they’ve got a lot of work to do if they’re going to repeat.
The poor pitching has been a weak point for Atlanta this season, but still has time to turn around. The defending champions could still make noise late in the season.
The Padres are in a tough NL West division, sitting near the very top with the Dodgers and Giants. They’ve played well both at home and on the road, showing why they’re one of the best teams in the MLB.
Manny Machado has fueled San Diego on offense, already notching 46 hits on the season. Alongside him, Eric Hosmer has been great as well.
The Padres truly have the talent to go the distance this season. If they’re able to bring a fully healthy roster into the postseason, they should be a contender.
