2015 Previews: The National League West in a nutshell


For the past few weeks we’ve been previewing the 2015 season. Here, in handy one-stop-shopping form, is our package of previews from the National League West:

The Giants are the defending champs, but did they get worse in the offseason? The Dodgers did some tinkering, but they still have the best pitcher in the game and more money than God. The Padres had the busiest offseason of any team, but did all that sound and fury signify anything? The Diamondbacks have a new manager and a new GM, but will that translate to immediate results? The Rockies: entering year 23 of trying to figure out how to pitch at altitude.
