While the divisional races in the National League aren’t as tight as they are in the American League, there is still a lot to be decided with 40 games left in the regular season. While just a few teams are relevant in the Wildcard race in the NL, it should come right down to the wire. Here are the latest standings:

1)     Washington Nationals- The Nationals have won six games in a row and now have the best record in the NL and the 4th best record in baseball.

2)     Milwaukee Brewers – The Brewers still lead the NL Central and while it has been as low as a half of a game lead it now stands at three.

3)     Los Angeles Dodgers – Just 4-6 in their last 10 games including losing three in a row and those were all at home.

4)     St. Louis Cardinals – While this season has been a struggle there are few teams that want to face St. Louis in the post-season.

5)     San Francisco Giants – haven’t been able to take advantage of the Dodgers’ struggles.

6)     Atlanta Braves (1.5 games back) – The Braves aren’t done just yet but they can’t afford another bad streak.

7)     Pittsburgh Pirates (1.5 games back) – The Pirates have had a tough schedule recently and have been without McCutchen.

8)     Miami Marlins (3 games back) – The marlins simply refuse to go away and they are still quietly very much in the mix.

9)     Cincinnati Reds (3.5 games back) – The Reds are still in it even though they are missing Votto and Phillips, their two best players.

10)  New York Mets (7 games back) – With the young pitching staff coming together on the watch list for next year.

11)  San Diego Padres (7 games back) – If the Padres had better hitting they would be right in the thick of the race.

12)  Philadelphia Phillies (11.5 games back) – I wouldn’t even know where to begin to start to rebuild this team.

13)  Chicago Cubs (12 games back) – I am not really a believer that this team is ready to step it up in the near future.

14)  Arizona Diamondbacks (12.5 games back) – Last year Kirk Gibson was Manager of the Year, which should let him keep his job.

15)  Colorado Rockies (17 games back) – Big injuries and a subpar pitching have been a nasty combination for the Rockies.
