Around the Bases Vol III: NL Central Preview
The last division we looked at was the NL West. Now, Around the Bases takes a peek at the NL Central.

From the end of the 2007 season to the end of the 2008 season, every team in the NL Central had improved, with the exception of the Pittsburgh Pirates. They somehow managed to have dropped a game. Even the Cincinnati Reds improved by 2 wins. Oddly, the St. Louis Cardinals went from six games under .500 (78-84) to 10 games over .500 (86-76), yet still managed to drop from 3rd place to 4th place in the division. Houston had an even bigger swing, going from 16 games under .500 (73-89) to 9 games over (86-75), and went from 4th to 3rd place in the division.

The Chicago Cubs, meanwhile, maintained their dominance of the NL Central division for the 2nd year in a row. That is where Around the Bases begins today.

The rest of the column can be found in TMRZoo's sports page. The link is listed below for your convenience.
