The NL Central has the potential to be one of the most competitive divisions in baseball. Its division winner, the Brewers, made it to the NLCS, the Cubs made it to the Wild Card Game, up until the last week of the season, the Cardinals were competing, and Pirates also finished above . 500. The Reds were the only team not to have a winning record and are looking to change that by adding Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp, and Sonny Gray to their roster.
One of the best rivalries in baseball actually means something to both teams going into the final weekend of the season. The Chicago Cubs are trying to avoid having to play a Wild Card game on Tuesday. The St. Louis Cardinals are fighting for their playoff lives. How will this battle unfold?
