Buster Posey's health is a key factor in the division race

The Arizona Diamondbacks are the reigning champions of the National League West. They received some outstanding contributions last year and also stayed relatively healthy.

The Giants' chances were destroyed by the injury bug, but they now appear healthy and ready to challenge again in 2012.

The Dodgers have two of the top players in baseball, and the Rockies and Padres have made some positive moves, also.

There are several new faces in the division this year, as hot stove league acquisitions look to make a big impact for their new teams. There were more quality additions to the NL West heading into this year, than there were departures.

The team that wins the division this season will have earned it, as the talent level has increased.

Let's take a look at each team and my predictions for the season.
