Re: Weak NL Central?
The concept of a weak 6-team division always bugged me, especially when you have perennial winners St Louis and Houston, not to mention the recently budget irrelevant Cubs.
Here is something to keep in mind for all those who think this division is the Cubs' to lose:
The Cubs one kryptonite seems to be playing on the road, and while they are now an amazing 13 games over .500 just 55 games into the season, they have played 10 more games at home than on the road, while the Reds (also a strong home team) to date have played 2 more road games and have gotten 2 horrendous West Coast trips out of the way. And the Reds seem to be just now finding themselves. I am hardly ready to concede the division.
