Altanta made some moves today, bringing back Brian McCann for what will likely be his swan song and giving Josh Donaldson a chance to see if he can stay healthy and MVP-caliber productive again. An extra arm for their rotation, and they are likely the favorites to win the division again, no matter what steps Washington and Philadelphia take.

So far, I haven't seen much from the Nats. They seem to be stuck waiting for the Bryce Harper drama to play out, since that drives whatever payroll flexibility they have to sign other players.

I have no idea what to expect from the Orioles. It's a nice fantasy to hope for something like the "Why Not?!" 1989 season, but it seems like given the new management focus, they probably want to lose, to rack up some more draft picks. I can't imagine what it would be like to play for a team whose leadership not only doesn't expect much from you, but would probably prefer if you didn't exceed expectations.
