Andy Capwell’s Baseball Predictions: NL Central
Spring is here! Believe it or not, the snow will melt and baseballs will being going, going, gone in ballparks all over the country. I will be predicting each division in the MLB, this is the second in a series of six. Here are my thoughts for the NL Central.1. Cincinnati Reds. The Reds have a strong offense with Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips leading the way. They should have enough pitching to win the division.
2. St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals always seem to contend for the division and they should be in the thick of the division race this year. Injured pitchers from last season are the key with Adam Wainwright and Chris Carpenter.
3. Milwaukee Brewers. This is is on the rise. Solid offense with MVP candidate Ryan Braun and exciting young players, shortstop Segura and outfielders Aoki and Gomez. I'll also be rooting for Brunswick, Maine's Mark Rogers, who has a chance to be in the starting rotation.
5. Chicago Cubs. The loveable Cubs look like they'll keep their streak of not winning the World Series. The offense is young and has potential with Starlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo. The pitching looks very weak.
Tomorrow, I'll look at the NL West.
Who do you like in the NL Central?
