Ill take the Milwaukee Brewers.
To start, the Brewers have an excellent core in Fielder, Braun, and Hart. All three could be allstars for the next 10 years.
Fielder is a top 3 first baseman in the MLB already and was the youngest player ever to hit 50 HR's. He is 2nd in the NL in RBIs.
Braun has 57 RBI's and is hitting .290. He has back to back 100 RBI seasons.
Heck even Rickie Weeks is in the top 10 in HR's this season for the Brew Crew.
The Brewers have plenty of young talent on offense.
They also have a good young future ace in Yovani Gallardo. They have a decent staff and with some additions this offseason could lead the Brewers back over .500
Finally they play in a division with Pirates, Astros, and Cubs. None of those teams have a very bright future this year or next. With some easy wins over those bottom feeders, the Brewers should be able to get to .500 next year.
Good Luck Peach

First off Livan Hernandez is 35 years old and getting worse. Including him for next year is ridiculous.
J.D. Martin is 1-5, he isnt anything to build around.
Strasburg is good but isnt yet what he will be and he wont have reached that next year either.
As for your relievers:
Peralta-34 (only 13 IP all season)
Batista-39 (4.50 ERA)
Then they have a bunch of unproven AAA's and below average relievers and a good closer.
" the STRONGER DIVISION"
Your correct the Nationals play in the stronger division which means they will win less games.
Who said Prince has to be the leader? Maybe thats Ryan Brauns role or Corey Hart? The best player doesnt have to be the leader. Im sure Brewers fans would be plenty happy with Prince hitting 50 HR's and Braun "leading the team".
Tell me..how many Nationals starters have a winning record? ONE, Strasburg.
Plus the Nationals are not going to be able to get anyone to come there this offseason that will make enough of a difference to get above .500. I mean who really wants Nyjer Morgan as there lead-off man?
