ESPN: Off Season Power Rankings

Early projection: Indians No. 1 in '06:

23. San Diego Padres: The Padres won the woeful NL West in '05, but more by default. It will be even harder for them to stay above .500 in '06. Expect Brian Giles, Ramon Hernandez and longtime closer Trevor Hoffman to leave Southern California. They still have ace Jake Peavy and Khalil Greene, but not much else to predict another division

Somehow the Giants are at 15 and the D-Backs at 17.   ESPN thinks they will battle it out for the NL West.
