NATIONAL LEAGUE WEST PREVIEW

They pick Estes as our prettiest Padre.  The ladies of Gaslamp Ball still lean towards Clay Hensley.  To each his own I guess.  Estes is apparently the most attractive to men.

Hot Player: Pleasant on the eyes, tough to hit in the batter's box. That's what journeyman P Shawn Estes is.

Here's their prediction:

  1.  Dodgers (89-73)
  2.  Rockies (82-80)
  3.  Giants (76-86)
  4.  Padres (71-91)
  5.  D-Backs (69-93)
Outlook: It's not so good for last year's division champs. The Padres do have Jake Peavy, who appears to be one of the elite pitchers in the game, and they added an intriguing arm in 6-10 hurler Chris Young. But the core has gotten old and management didn't help by adding aging veterans clearly on the downside of their careers.

Prediction: 71-91 (2005 Record: 82-80)

Need some eye candy of MLB guys in the locker room?  They got that too.
