This division sent both the Rockies and Dodgers to the post season last year and could exceed expectations once again in 2010.
The Dodgers will likely contend for first place, but really need their young guns in Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier to step up and lead the way.
Same goes for the Rockies...anchored by Troy Tulowitzki and veteran Todd Helton, expect Colorado to make a run for the division crown once again. The Giants came up a bit short last season, but with aces in Matt Cain and Tim Lincecum, they should have a shot, assuming their offense can pick up the slack.
Next up are the Diamondbacks...with solid pitching in Dan Haren and Justin Upton leading the way at the plate, can they turn around a last place finish from last year?
Last up are the Padres who finished the '09 season on a high note. If Adrian Gonzalez and the rest of the squad can build on last year's momentum, they might just be the dark horse in the division.
