The National League has some great teams in it and there are also 2 very tight divisions every year. The NL East and the NL Central always come down to the wire, but the NL West not so much. Today I will be writing about the best team in every National League Division. 2 of the teams on the list won their division last year and all 3 made the playoffs, so lets get into it.
Starting in the NL Central, I chose the Brewers as the best team in that division. Obviously, Christian Yelich is one of the best players in the MLB and the Brewers have one of the best outfields in the MLB. The Brewers have decent pitching, a solid bullpen, and they are a great team all around. They nearly won the NL Wild Card game last year, but lost it after Juan Soto delivered one of the clutchest hits of the season. The Cardinals are also pretty good, but in the end the Brewers are just the better team.

The Dodgers are the best team in NL West and it is not even close. Kershaw, Buehler, Bellinger, Muncy, Turner, and Corey Seager are the Dodgers stars along with depth players like Chris Taylor and Kike Hernandez. This combination of stars and depth players make the Dodgers one of the best teams in the MLB. The Dodgers have a great bullpen and are just an all around stacked team. They lost in 5 games to the Washington Nationals in the NLDS last season in a very disappointing ending to the season.
I chose the Atlanta Braves as the best team in the NL East. They won the division last year and are probably the second best team in the National League. The Braves pitching is alright, but the bats are what make them go. I chose the Braves over the defending World Series champions, the Washington Nationals, because the Nats lost Anthony Rendon in the offseason. Ronald Acuna, Freddie Freeman, Ozzie Albies, and Marcell Ozuna have the firepower to help the Braves win the NL East for the 3rd straight year.
