There’s plenty to be excited about when it comes to the next division in the Baseball Bar-B-Cast preview series, as we take a trip out to the NL West.

Jake Mintz & Jordan Shusterman talk about the division that produced the shocking 2023 National League champions Arizona Diamondbacks and whether they can repeat their surprising success this season. However, they’ll have to find a way to deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers who went on a billion dollar spending free this offseason, most notably adding Shohei Ohtani and Yoshinobu Yamamoto.

They’ll also discuss if the projections for the San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants are fair, as well as if the Colorado Rockies can find a way to have some success in one of the tougher divisions in the game.
