Projected Standings: NL Central
My bad on the Griffey situation. It doesn't change the Braves team projection, as without him they'll score less but also allow less. The Mariners should pick up a win in the AL West.
As to the NL Central:
The big surprise to me is the Reds. I wouldn't have guessed they'd be over .500 but they do have a very talented starting rotation. Arroyo and Harang had off years in 2008, and Cueto has a lot of promise. A strong defense is just what these pitchers need to make improvement more likely. The Brewers have some bats but will miss CC and Sheets. Cubs are still the best in the division.
