6. Los Angeles Dodgers (3-3) – The good: Adrian Gonzalez is on another planet right now. The bad: Clayton Kershaw hasn’t quite rebounded from his 2014 playoff performance yet.
7. St. Louis Cardinals (3-2) – The Cardinals had concerns over the health of their rotation. So far so good as Adam Wainwright, Michael Wacha and Lance Lynn look healthy and on top of their game.
8. Cincinnati Reds (4-2) – A healthy Joey Votto makes the Reds offense dangerous. But is there enough in the rotation behind Johnny Cueto to keep them in the fight for the NL Central crown?
9. Washington Nationals (2-4) – Yes despite just two wins, I have the Nationals in my top 10. Why? Five quality starts and a 2.32 ERA through six games tells me they will wake when some of their offensive players return from injury.
10. Atlanta Braves (5-1) – Surprise, surprise. No Kimbrel, no Uptons, no Jason Heyward, no problem. Through six games, the Braves have the lowest ERA in baseball and the third most runs in the NL.
Next: Are the Rockies just out of the Top 10?
