UCB Project – NL Central

by on March 23, 2011 · 1 comment

A lot has indeed changed since November when I predicted an NL Central finish like this one:

  1. Cardinals
  2. Reds
  3. Astros
  4. Cubs
  5. Brewers
  6. Pirates

Now I’ve revised my list to this:

  1. Brewers
  2. Cardinals
  3. Reds
  4. Cubs
  5. Astros
  6. Pirates

Why? 

  • Adam Wainwright went under the knife
  • Shaun Marcum’s velocity isn’t what it’s supposed to be right now
  • Cueto isn’t 100% as of yet
  • The Pena/Garza deal in Chicago looks reasonably good (until Garza gets into the Windy City)
  • The Reds don’t look at all improved over last season

In case the rest of the UCB folks forgot, we produced a prediction list way back in November, and you can find it here.  Might be worth checking to keep yourselves honest.

Like it?  Forgot that the UCB did a roundtable like this recently?  Follow gr33nazn on Twitter for more reminders!

Cardinals fan since I could hold a fishing pole steady. Accidental blogger. Opinionated. I could care less about what you think of me. Constantly confounded, bemused, and confuzzled (ie I'm a pc and a mac). I'm an IT infrastructure analyst with a penchant for breaking tech toys. I ate a sabermetric primer for breakfast. I love playing "All-powerful GM of MLB". The 2010 Cardinals represented a good, practical definition "cognitive dissonance". The 2011 version got by on duct tape and a prayer, and I'm fine with that. They just need new tape for #12 in 12.
