Chart: National League power rankings

  • Updated: March 29, 2013 - 1:26 PM

NL POWER RANKINGS

1. Washington

The team with the most wins in the league last season finally got the leadoff man it needed in Denard Span. Stephen Strasburg = Optimus Prime.

2. Cincinnati

Shin-Soo Choo at the top of this batting order? The Reds will score plenty of runs and have the arms to make a serious postseason run.

3. Los Angeles

The Dodgers are already holding their breath over Zack Greinke’s sore elbow in camp. Offense should be more productive.

4. Atlanta

Here come the Upton brothers. Kris Medlen is around for a full season. Jason Heyward and

Freddie Freeman have another year of experience. Watch

out.

5. San Francisco

The defending champs have an outstanding starting rotation, but they don’t have power, don’t have Brian Wilson and don’t have Tim Lincecum’s long hair.

  • It’s a new-look Tim Lincecum on a San Francisco staff that hasn’t changed much: It’s still going to be dominant.
