Cincinnati Reds: Rolling along in NL Central Division
Despite the fact that they have been without their top hitter (Canadian Joey Votto) since July 15, the Cincinnati Reds continue to own the National League Central Division playoff race. Now a full six games clear of the Pittsburgh Pirates, the new Big Red Machine is just two games shy of the best record in baseball.
Chicago Cubs: Playing out yet another lost season in Chi-Town
It’s another “wait until next year” season for Chicago Cubs fans as their hometown hero’s are so far back in the playoff race that they almost feel like they’re in first. Save for the Houston Astros (39-80) and Colorado Rockies (45-71) the Cubbies are the worst team in baseball and have dropped eight of their last ten games.
