The NL West is home to a variety of offensive setups, but all five teams better hope things change sooner than later.

Colorado owes much of its hot start to the double play combination of Jonathan Herrera and Troy Tulowitzki. One of these names should come as no surprise. In our preseason predictions, Baseball Prospectus staffers picked Tulowitzki to finish second in NL MVP voting.

Divide and Conquer, NL West: Catch as Catch Can

2

Geoff Young

The NL West has been overrun by catchers who can hit, but whether or not that success will last the season is more up for debate.

Have you noticed the starting catchers in the NL West? Can you even name one of the starters other than Buster Posey?

The Dodgers and Giants present a study in differing team construction, the Rockies and Diamondbacks face off, and pitching for San Diego makes even Dustin Moseley useful.

Geoff Young

As a new season dawns, Geoff looks at how baseball went west in the first place.

As Yogi Berra might say, we'll have all year to discuss the season. This week takes us in a different direction. Come, step into my TARDIS, as we examine the origins of professional baseball in each of the NL West cities.

Divide and Conquer, NL West: Value Over Replacement Fluff

Geoff Young

The reigning World Champions have nothing better to discuss than the eating habits of Tim Lincecum, and other news from the Senior Circuit's west.

In the first of a new series focused on our far-flung divisions, third base is a sad position league-wide, but nowhere more than in the NL West.

The New Dickson Baseball Dictionary attributes the coinage of "hot corner" as a synonym for third base to one Ren Mulford, who employed it while discussing Cincinnati's Hick Carpenter in 1889. As the 2011 season approaches, a more appropriate term to use in the NL West might be "lukewarm corner."
