Craig's cohesive Giants to capture the
West again; Reds, Dodgers next in line
1. San Francisco The Giants
have a wealth of talent, but more
importantly, in Roger Craig they
have a manager who can mold that
talent into a title-winning team.
The starting pitching is strong, but
some, such as Rick Reuschel (13-9,
3.09 ERA) have to be considered
questionable due to their age. Mike
Krukow, Dave Dravecky, Mike
LaCoss and young Kelly Downs
make up the rest of a fine staff.
In the offseason, the Giants picked
up Brett Butler (.295, 33 steals) from
Cleveland to replace the departed
Chili Davis in an awesome lineup.
First baseman Will Clark is a Sports
Illustrated coverboy, and Robby
Thompson, Kevin Mitchell and
Candy Maldonado are others who
should give opposing pitchers into
The bench is strong, with Mike
Aldrete (.325) leading the way. In
addition, the bullpen is tough the
1-2 punch of Don Robinson and
fireballer Scott Garrelts can slam
Craig was masterful last year with
this mix of young promise and
coming-into-their-own veterans, and
he should find himself in the playoffs
again this year without much trouble.
2. Cincinnati We know Eric
Davis is awesome, but the major
problem keeping the Reds from the
pennant is finding some clout at the
plate to keep opposing pitchers from
serving 4E' low-and-outside junk.
The Reds made a number of
offseason moves and tried to solve
their major problem from last year
pitching. As a result of the
wheeling-and-dealing, they could be
very strong. Danny Jackson (9-18,
4.02) could finally win big. Tom
Browning, Dennis Rasmussen and
Ron Robinson complete the rotation.
As for the lineup, Pete Rose's boys
are young and strong, with rookie Jeff
Treadway, Barry Larkin, Kal Daniels

(.334, 26 HR in 108 games) and Tracy
Jones (.290) following after Davis in
the promise department.
3. Houston The West's version
of the St. Louis Cardinals, the Astros
have long been a team dominated by
speed and pitching. But while their
glaring lack of power could be
excused in the past, it is a gaping
wound this season.
Only Glenn Davis (.251, 27 HR,
97 RBI) can empty the bases with
any sort of consistency, and his
average is a testament to his extended
efforts. The same cast of Bill Doran
(.283, 79 RBI, 31 steals), Denny
Walling, Alan Ashby, Kevin Bass and
Billy Hatcher returns, with one
exception Rafael Ramirez, who
will shine now that he is out away
from that horrible Atlanta infield.
The pitching is, as usual, very good.
The rotation of Mike Scott, Nolan
Ryan, Jim Deshaies and Bob
Knepper is the best in the West, and
Dave Smith (24 saves, 1.65 ERA) is
a top-notch reliever.

If the bullpen continues its Swiss
cheese reputation, despite the pickups
of Jesse Orosco and Jay Howell, you
have a Dodger team that really looks
Of course, the starting pitching, as
always, will bail them out. The combo
of Fernando Valenzuela (14-14, 3.98)
and Orel Hershiser (16-16, 3.06) is an
exquisite one. But when general
manager Fred Claire gave up righ
thander Bob Welch in an offseason
trade, he blew the Dodgers' title hopes
out into the L.A. smog.
5. San Diego This is a nice club
that didn't deserve its 1442 start last
year. In the off-season, the Padres got
rid of Goose Gossage and Steve
Garvey, to let some of their youth
shine, and that's precisely what will
Leading the charge will be MVP
caliber outfielder Tony Gywnn, who
hit .370 last year with a bad hand.
Backing him up will be bruising John
Kruk (.313, 20 HR, 91 RBI), Chris
Brown, Stan Jefferson, newcomer
Keith Moreland and last year's
Rookie of the Year, Benito Santiago
(.300, 18, 79).
6. Atlanta Oh, boy. Why
couldn't Ted Turner leave well
enough alone six years ago, with Brett
Butler and Brook Jacoby blossom
ing? Turner is all thumbs when it
comes to baseball, and he should sell
the team to someone who won't make
any more bonehead trades.
Dale Murphy is the centerpiece of
this squad, and he has some support
in Dion James (.312) and Gerald
Perry (42 steals).
The pitching could be downright
nasty if Zane Smith's aching elbow
is worse than he's letting on. Rick
Mahler is the other bright spot, but
then you get youngsters Tom Glavine,
Kevin Coffman and some others who
need more minor-league seasoning.
Bruce Sutter is trying to come back
from rotator cuff woes, but unless a
miracle takes place, you can pencil

The Mets' cocky group should reclaim
East title after an injury-plagued 1987
1. New York The Mets have
not only supplanted the Yankees as
the Big Apple's top team, they have
succeeded their formerly feisty neigh
bors as Major League Baseball's
foremost group of crybabies. Just ask
Ozzie Smith about these guys.
But egg shell egos aside, the Mets
are a lock to return to the throne they
occupied two years ago. On the
surface, last season's second-place
finish behind the Cardinals was a
disappointment. But the fact New
York won 92 games despite a relent
less rash of injuries (Ron Darling,
Bob Ojeda, Sid Fernandez and Rick
Aguilera) and personal setbacks
(Dwight Gooden's two-month drug
rehab hiatus) that beset the best
pitching staff in baseball is a testim
ony to this team's greatness.
Offensively, no team in the
National League, with the possible
exception of the Cincinnati Reds, can
match the firepower of the Mets.
With little Lenny Dykstra leading off
and Keith Hernandez, Darryl Straw
berry, Kevin McReynolds, Gary
Carter and Howard Johnson batting
third through seventh for manager
Davey Johnson, New York can't help
but score reams of runs.
Addition by subtraction (trading
Jesse Orosco and replacing him with
young flamethrower Randy Myers)
will no doubt improve the bullpen.
If someone could just figure out
a way to keep Strawberry away from
reporters, the Mets will clinch this
division by Labor Day.
2. Montreal With all the young
talent in this organization, Buck
Rodgers' Expos seem capable of
contending well into the 25th century,
or at least the late 1990s.
Tim Raines, while no longer the
best player in the game, is still one
of the top five. Third baseman Tim
Wallach had his best season last year
(26 homers, 123 RBI), while his
compatriot across the diamond, first
baseman Andres Gallaraga, has

and slow and withstood a record
setting three-point performance from
Oklahoma's Dave Sieger to avenge
two losses to the Sooners, 35-4,
during the regular season.
This was the third championship
game played between two teams from
the same conference, and it was the
third this decade in which a heavy
underdog managed to win the title.
Kansas was an eight-point under
dog, but in the first half the Jayhawks
ran with the Sooners, the nation's
second-leading scoring team and the
regular-season and tournament
champions of the Big Eight. Then the
Jayhawks showed patience in the
second half, running the 45-second

4. Philadelphia Bullpen ace
Steve Bedrosian won the Cy Young
Award last season by saving half of
the Phillies' 80 victories. "Bedrock"
is opening this year on the disabled
list with walking pneumonia, a
possible omen of things to come.
Once again, the Phils have tons of
offense (Mike Schmidt, Von Hayes,
Juan Samuel, Lance Parrish and
offseason acquisition Phil Bradley),
but come up way short in defense and
starting pitching. And would some
body please tell me where Mike
Young is supposed to play?

6. Chicago "Holy cow, these
guys are bad!" broadcaster Harry
Caray might intone one day this year,
maybe in the heat of August as his
beloved Cubbies edge ever closer to
100 losses. How bad were the Cubs
in 1987? Andre Dawson had an MVP
season (49 homers, 137 RBI) and this
club was still finished last, though just
nine games under .500.
With all due apologies to Bill
Murray, George Will and Dave
Lohse, diehard Cub fans all, this year
promises to be even worse for the Ivy
wallers. After Rick Sutcliffe, Don
Zimmer's pitching staff is a mess, and
Rich Gossage is hardly a fair swap
for Lee Smith in the stopper's role.
The good news is that with general
manager Dallas Green gone, and Jim
Frey in his place, the youth movement
is on. By late June you can look for
the Cubs to turn to young replace
ments for Jody Davis (Damon Ber
ryhill) and Leon Durham (Mark
Grace). The marvelous Ryne Sand
