I know it's early, but the WC standings are very interesting....for example: in the AL Central the Tigers are 7.5 games behind, but only 2.5 behind Chi. for 1st in the Div. Winning the Div. will be FAR easier for them.
But in the N.L it's gonna be a dogfight: gotta figure the Reds and Cards will be swapping 1st place back and forth, with no other Central team even a remote threat for the WC.... S.F, Colo. and LA are between 1 and 2.5 back and will be pounding on each other all the way.
The Mets are 3 back in the East. Florida is 6 back, but the odds of them overcoming 6 teams to win the WC is near impossible. It behooves the Reds (and Cards) to beat the west from this point on.
This is gonna be fun.
