MLB Preview 2012: Predicting the National League East Division

The National League East is one of the most competitive divisions in Major League Baseball.

The scary part about that is the division got even stronger during the offseason thanks to acquisitions by the Miami Marlins and Washington Nationals.

At the moment, the current toast of the NL East is the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Phillies have established a dynasty in their division as they've won the title every year since 2008.

The mission for the other four teams in the NL East is simple: "To be the man, you gotta beat the man."

To beat the Phillies, teams will need to have a well rounded roster that can keep up with the three stud pitchers in Philadelphia as well as slug with their awesome lineup.

It won't be easy, but with the recent improvements teams have made in the division (along with some of the recent struggles by the Phillies), there's a possibility we could see a new champion in the National League East this season.
