2022 MLB National League Pennant Futures Picks

The Atlanta Braves claimed their 18th National League Pennant in 2021 with a six-game championship series win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Atlanta then went on to win their fourth World Series title and first since 1995 with another six-game series win over the Houston Astros. The Braves had a 88-73 record during the 2021 MLB regular season, which was good enough for first place in the NL East.

The Braves are not the favorites to win the National League in 2022, but they are one of the teams who are in the mix to claim the National League Pennant.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers were one of three teams to end the 2021 MLB season with over 100 wins. Los Angeles went 106-56, the San Francisco Giants were 107-55, and the Tampa Bay Rays had a 100-62 record. The Dodgers came out hot to start the 2022 season. As of this writing, Los Angeles is 20-9 with 149 runs scored against 71 runs allowed.

Los Angeles has four pitchers who have started five or more games; three of those men have ERA’s under 1.96, and the other has a 2.10 ERA. To say that pitching is a strength of the 2022 Dodgers club would be an understatement.

If the team can continue playing as it has, it’s going to be a long season for the other National League squads.

New York Mets

The New York Mets had a losing record last year at 77-85. It looks as if the team has turned things around as they have started the 2022 MLB season incredibly fast and strong.

The Mets have the best record in the National League right now at 21-10, and they have scored 140 runs against 102 allowed runs.

Buck Showalter signed on as the Mets manager over the winter, and the veteran looks like he might be the answer the club has been looking for. Also, the team’s big investment in Max Scherzer looks like it is going to pay off. The team gave the ace pitcher a three-year $130 million deal in December. He struck out 10 in seven innings in his debut with the team.

Milwaukee Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers are 20-12 to start the 2022 MLB season and have scored 159 runs against 130 runs allowed. The Brewers had a good season last year with a not particularly deep pitching rotation. It appears that the team will have better representation on the mound in 2022. If the Brewers’ pitching holds up, they will remain in the mix throughout the 2022 season.

Atlanta Braves

The Atlanta Braves have a losing record at this point of the season at 14-17. The team has also been outscored 134 runs to 126. They are already seven games out of first place in the East behind the New York Mets.

Atlanta has not found its groove in 2022. If the team doesn’t get things together soon, it could be a long season for last year’s National League Pennant winner.

Our pick

The Los Angeles Dodgers have won the National League Pennant three times since 2017. I think the team will make it four in 2022.
