Re: What offseason loss was the biggest to our NL Central competition?
I went with LaRussa/Duncan. All of a sudden, the fire seems to be gone from that club without them... I wager that if they stuck around the owners might have made a reasonable offer for Pujols.
Losing Fielder is probably second for me. Expect a major drop-off in Braun's stats when he comes back, not only due to the PED allegations, but also the lack of that big cleanup hitter behind him. That offense looks pretty weak with only Ramirez, Weeks, and a downgraded Braun to carry them, and I don't see them winning the division unless someone steps up.
