Bob Kemp

2022 NL WEST PREDICTIONS

BOTTOMLINE
        *1. DODGERS: Friday’s acquisition of Craig Kimbrel should solve the ninth inning question.
        *2. GIANTS: The pitching and defense are good enough to overcome the questionable offensive production.
        *3. PADRES: Bob Melvin is a significant upgrade, but the roster is missing difference makers.
        *4. ROCKIES: Kris Bryant playing leftfield in spacious Coors Field is a massive mistake.
        *5. DIAMONDBACKS: The pitching and defense are improved, but not enough to overcome the anemic offense.
