Projected 2007 NL East Lineups

on .

Barring any more moves... Florida has a nice young lineup and starting rotation, but absolutely no bullpen. The rotation has tons of potential, and if they can find a way to close out games, they may be a World Series contender. Philadelphia probably has the most well balanced team in the division, although they have no depth in their lineup and Wes Helms is their 3rd baseman. They have a decent rotation and bullpen, although that ballpark always has the chance of offsetting that (Ryan Howard might hit 80 homers). I must say that Charlie Manuel has done a decent job with this group and doesn't get much credit. New York has an incredible lineup, a bad starting rotation, and a strong bullpen. They have some projects in the rotation, and depending on how respected pitching coach Rick Peterson gets them to pitch may determine the division winner. Washington might be worse than the 03 Tigers. Auditions are being held for their rotation and you might make it.
