In the NL East, the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies are battling for the division lead right now; both teams also have deep farm systems and are set up for success in the years to come.

That leaves the other three squads -- the New York Mets, Florida Marlins and Washington Nationals -- in a tough spot. We know the Nats just got Bryce Harper in the MLB draft (and lost Stephen Strasburg for 18 or so months). The Marlins promoted one of their better minor leagues, Logan Morrison, this season.

What does the future hold for these three squads as they try to catch up with the Braves and Phillies?
