Initially thought to simply be a two-horse race, the NL West has shown us it’s a competitive division head to toe. Nearly a third of the way through the season, only 6.5 games separate the entire division, the second-smallest margin in the MLB (AL Central is five games).
The defending division champs and subsequent world champions San Francisco Giants have once again solidified themselves as the front-runners. However, the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks are closely trailing only one game behind.
So will the Los Angeles Dodgers turn it around and give the Giants a competitive race? Which teams in the division will surprise us and make a run for the playoffs?
