OK, so being a lifetime Astros fan makes me not only an eternal optimist, but also not very honest when it comes to picking at least one of these division winners. Seriously though, I think they will suprise this year and be in the race till the end.

You're dreaming about the Stros, bro.

But the Phillies are going to need a serious turn on their luck if this season is to work out. The Utley situation will tell the story. They might have maybe had a chance with Werth gone and Brown doing a fine imitation but Brown is hurt until at least may and he's really young and unknown. Howard is not the threat he once was and unless they find some serious offense (like from Rollins) they are going to lose a lot of low scoring games. I'm willing to bet they end up trading one of those pitchers for a bat.
