A look at the NL Central Standings going into May 12th games,
Cards 22-14 (W2)
BrewCrew 23-16 (W2) .5 back
Pirates 22-16 (W4) 1 back
Cubs 20-15 (W4) 1.5 back
Reds 12-27 (W4) 11.5 back
-The Cubs have won 4 in a row but because the 4 teams ahead of them are also sizzling hot, they haven't gained any ground over the last few days. The whole Division is on fire, Reds have even won 4 in row.
-No longer the Dark Knight, Matt Harvey has now become the RED KNIGHT! In Harvey's Reds debut, he pitched 4 scoreless Innings. Reds defeat the Dodgers 6-2 who now fall to 16-22. What is wrong with the Dodgers? Dodgers now 8 games behind the 1st place 24-14 Diamondbacks in the NL West.
-I love the AL East race. The RedSox and Yankees both are tied for 1st at 26-12. That should be fun to watch all season.
