VIP.com has updated its 2007 National League Pennant odds. The NL is feeling better about themselves after a St. Louis win in the World Series last year. Now, they try to make it two years in a row.
New York Mets (10:3)
The Mets hit like an American League team which is the highest compliment. Unfortunately, their starting pitching could hold them back again.
Los Angeles Dodgers (5:1)
The Dodgers are the opposite of the Mets as they could be looking at a power outage, and they are counting on their pitching to win most nights.
Chicago Cubs (5:1)
Chicago is desperate for a World Series win this year. That would allow the most famous Cubs' fan, Steve Bartman to come out of hiding.
St. Louis Cardinals (7:1)
Fiscal discipline by the Cardinals has been driving fans crazy, but how can you argue with a World Series championship?
San Diego Padres (10:1)
The Padres are one of the few teams with stronger pitching than hitting, but they may need another bat to be a serious title contender.
Philadelphia Phillies (10:1)
Philadelphia is in a 13 year playoff drought. General Manager, Pat Gillick has added to the starting rotation to end the streak this year.
Atlanta Braves (16:1)
Atlanta's string of 14 consecutive division titles is over, and it might be impossible for them to get their old swagger back.
Houston Astros (16:1)
Houston mans the Roger Clemens watch down South, while the Yankees man it up North. The Astros need him a heck of a lot more.
San Francisco Giants (16:1)
The Giants' two big signings this year were both Barry's. Now, Zito with join the incumbent Bonds, to try to bring a title to San Francisco.
Florida Marlins (16:1)
The Marlins had a tremendous season in 2006 considering how young they were, but how will they fare without manager Joe Girardi?
Milwaukee Brewers (20:1)
Milwaukee is a very interesting team with their stable of young hitters. Ben Sheets anchors the starting staff, but he has to stay healthy.
Arizona Diamondbacks (20:1)
The "Big Unit", Randy Johnson is back with the team, and the Diamondbacks hope he is healthy enough for 30 starts behind Brandon Webb.
Cincinnati Reds (25:1)
Cincinnati always seems to find ways to score runs, but they need a reliable third starter behind Bronson Arroyo and Aaron Harang.
Colorado Rockies (30:1)
Todd Helton will be staying with Colorado, but the success of the Rockies will be more dependent on young players, Garrett Atkins and Matt Holliday.
Pittsburgh Pirates (60:1)
The Pirates have had 14 consecutive losing seasons. Adding first baseman, Adam LaRoche will help, but pitching is still a big question mark.
Washington Nationals (75:1)
It was only two years ago that the Nationals made a run at the playoffs, but they have quickly bottomed out to be the worst in the NL.
