Cardinals Favored In NL Central

An article on the Cardinals website suggests that St. Louis should be considered the favorite in the National League Central this year. This would be the first time in two or three years that the Redbirds would be so highly thought of.

The addition of Brad Penny to the rotation and having Matt Holliday for a full season will certainly bolster the club's chances. I personally think they should be the favorite but, and I think it's significant, the Cubs are still strong and may have added to their team by subtracting Milton Bradley.

If Chicago plays to it's potential and doesn't have to deal with drama in the clubhouse, they may make more of a race of this year even in the face of St. Louis' upgrades.

You have been warned.
