National League Wild Card
Chicago Cubs over Miami Marlins
Last year the Marlins played tough down the stretch and hung in the thick of things much longer than many would have expected. The rotation has taken significant steps forward, and the team looks like they are built the right way this time around, focused on youth. The Cubs should be ready to make the leap fueled by an impressive farm system. With the established talent like Anthony Rizzo and Starlin Castro already there, getting Kris Bryant, Jorge Soler, and the rest of the major league ready crop to contribute should be a lot of fun.
