The Brewers have offense but their pitching is weaker.
The astros are getting worse. They have Berkmann, Lee, Oswalt & pray for rain.
Shoot, those rankings don't think much of the entire NL. I doubt the 6th best AL team is better than the best NL team. The NL Central is notoriously under ranked going into a year. Same was true last year yet they did have two entries into the post season
