My 2012 National League Central Standings

I have seen a lot of 2012 National League Central predictions and thought I would share my predictions. Many experts still think St. Louis Cardinals will be the top team, but if you look at my predictions I won’t show them any love at all, because I really think their losses out weigh their gains this offseason. Plus, they did not finish first last season with what they had so it is not easy for me to understand how people expect them to get first in 2012. I do think the Pirates will have a good season though and they could be a tough team to beat again for the Reds this season.

Now, of course these are just my early thoughts on what the standings will look like and I have been wrong many years. I do have a feeling though that the Cardinals and Brewers are going to have a tough time repeating what they did in 2011. Not just because of Prince Fielder and Albert Pujols but because of everything that has happened this offseason.

My 2012 National League Central Prediction:

1. Cincinnati Reds
2. Pittsburgh Pirates
3. Milwaukee Brewers
4. St. Louis Cardinals
5. Chicago Cubs
6. Houston Astros

    Well Sir…
    …I’m Honestly Starting To Worry About YOUR REDS.
    They’re Signing Dude Left AND Right.
    In All Sincerity, They MIGHT Have Bought AND Traded Their Way Into The Playoffs, Dude.
    The Cardinals MIGHT Win It, Or Take 2ND in The Central.
    Your Reds ARE My Other Choice For WINNING The Central OR Coming in 2ND.

    Either Way It Goes…
    …The Reds DO Look MUCH Improved (on paper anyway) So I’m Chomping At The Bit To See WHAT Is Gonna Happen.

      It will be fun to watch national league central games now. I think it has been the most talked about division this offseason because of Pujols and Fielder leaving.

        Agreed, Sir. Agreed INDEED.
        Last Year Was FUN and AMAZING and FRUSTRATING. This Year, WHO KNOWS?!?!

        So It Could Be A WILDLY AMAZINGLY FUN 2012 Season, Fo SHO!!!

    I really enjoyed reading your blog. My name is David and I’m a kid who just started a blog. I think you know my cousins blog, “Brewers Today.” I was wondering if you could check it out. Please comment advice. This is it-

      Thank you. It is always good to see young fans of baseball giving their thoughts on the game. It helps to see a different view then just contract numbers, which is usually the view of the older fans.
