Wide open

It should be noted that the NL Central is shaping up to be a race to the wire with no real favorite and everyone contending. Even though the Brewers hold a two game lead they are only at +22 in run differential, lowest among all division leaders (but tops in the NL Central). In fact, the run differential in the NL Central (51; Brewers +22, Astros -29) between the highest and lowest team is the smallest margin of all the divisions in baseball. The Astros are the only team in the division with a negative run differential (still only seven games back) and only the AL East can make the claim of only one team in the red (Baltimore -60, with the other four teams crushing). The point is, don't sleep on anyone in the Central to make a run and don't get too down if your team drops eight games straight. They aren't out of it yet.
