As we near Spring Training, it's about time to start making predictions and forming projections for each team. While there are still many free agents on the market, a sufficient amount have been signed in order to rank each team's offense.
In ranking the league's best offenses, there are many aspects being taken into consideration.
The ability to get on base is essential. You can only have so many Mark Reynolds or Adam Dunn's on your team before you start to lose efficiency.
