It’s hard not to pick the Cardinals for the top spot in the Central. The Cardinals have been one of the most well-oiled machine from top to bottom in the National League for the past decade.

And while they only have the one World Series title in that stretch to show for it, they continue to make moves both from within and without the organization to remain competitive.

Until another team in this division can prove otherwise, the Cardinals reign supreme.
