The National League West has been one of the most fun divisions to watch in all of baseball in recent years. With the Padres competing at a high-level, and the Giants getting back to what they once were, the Dodgers suddenly have competition. And that’s a good thing.
There are a few things in sports more entertaining than close race to the finish. But the Dodgers along with those two teams have given fans a show for the last few years. And it’s only going to get better from here.
”I just don’t see a division that’s better than us. You can talk about the AL East, but top to bottom, every night we’re playing within the division it’s a battle to win a baseball game.”
Sure, the AL East features a few very good teams as well. But the NL West has 3 potential playoff teams again this year, much like the last few seasons of baseball. There’s nothing quite like it.
We don’t like to give the Padres and the Giants too much credit, but they are phenomenal ball clubs. Their front offices have been able to build teams that can compete every year much like the Dodgers. It’s going to be a very fun run over the next decade with these 3 teams. Don’t pay attention to those other 2 teams.
