The Philadelphia Phillies have won the East three years in a row and have two NL Pennants and a World Series title (2008). Last year they went 93-69 and almost made it back to back titles, losing to the Yankees in six games. Florida finished last season 87-75, a three win improvement from 2008, but still ended up six games out of first.

Atlanta showed the biggest improvement winning 14 more games than in 2008, ending with an 87-75 record. The biggest disappointment was the New York Mets.

Favored by many to unseat the Phillies and win the East, they were never able to recover from a slow start and finished 70-92, nowhere near their projected win total. Washington finished last in the East with basically the same dismal record from the year before. In 2008 they went 59-82 and followed that up by going 59-103 in 2009.

Here is a brief preview of all the teams in the NL East along with their future odds to win the division as well as their projected season win totals for the year.

Atlanta Braves
Odds to Win the NL East 7-2
Win Total Over/Under 85.5

The Braves pitching will once again be the strong point of this team. Their rotation features a couple of young arms in Jair Jurrgens and Tommy Hanson and a couple a veteran ones in Derek Lowe and Tim Hudson. The big question will be can their bats win them some games as well.

Florida Marlins
Odds to Win the NL East 5-1
Win Total Over/Under 81

The Marlins are another team that has a solid pitching core that can carry them to another competitive season. They also have some bats in their lineup with players like Jorge Cantu and Hanley Ramirez and up and coming players like Cody Ross and Chris Coghlan which makes them a very solid team.Bet on Baseball at sportsbook.com

New York Mets
Odds to Win the NL East 8-1
Win Total Over/Under 81

New York took a major step backwards last season and the prospect for a turnaround in 2010 does not look good. They have some serious holes in their lineup and will have to cross their fingers that their ace, Johann Santana can stay healthy for the entire season. With the high level of competition in the East, they will struggle to be a .500 club this year.

Philadelphia Phillies
Odds to Win the NL East 4-7
Win Total Over/Under 92.5

While they lost postseason sensation Cliff Lee they did add Roy Halladay which should make their starting rotation that much better. All the big bats are back from last year so I would expect this team to win a fourth straight NL East in 2010 as they are still the class of the division.

Washington Nationals
Odds to Win the NL East 75-1
Win Total Over/Under 70.5

The good news for the Nationals this year will be their ability to score runs. The bad news is they do not have the pitching to prevent most teams from scoring more than they do. They have worked to improve their rotation and have high hopes for pitching sensation Stephen Strasburg, who could be on the mound for them by early summer.
