Mike, Rich, and Sam will be joined by Phillies writer Mike Lacy from That Ball’s Outta Here, Marlins writer Placido Estevez from Marlin Maniac, and Braves writer Jeff Schafer from Tomahawk Take – three of our partner sites here on the FanSided Network.

The Mets are set up to improve on last year’s 74 win showing, and we’ll see what counterparts from inside the division think about their chances.

We’ll also discuss the Braves’ rotation concerns, the Jimmy Rollins drama in Philadelphia, and the continued emergence of Jose Fernandez in Miami.
