Re: Halfway Point: Who wins the NL Central?
I truly believe the Reds will win the division. Firstly, there's the run differential suggesting the Reds have played the best baseball thus far, despite the record. But for me, the real difference is depth. It's a long season. The Reds have the depth to both promote from within or acquire impact talent in the trade market. The same cannot be said about either the Cardinals or especially the Brewers.
If the Brewers stay fully healthy, they're going to be real tough. But they're only 1 injury from being in trouble.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
