2012 NL Central projected standings

The following are two different projected standings for the National League Central Division in 2012:

As you can see, both projections have the Redlegs around 87-88 wins this season. And if I was forced to take the over/under on 87.5 wins I'd go with the over without much hesitation. The organization has simply invested too much into this season for the team not to at least contend for a division crown. The hope remains that their "all-in" attitude will payoff by the stars aligning just right for them. Of course, it helps to have some stars in the likes of Joey Votto, Brandon Phillips, Jay Bruce and Johnny Cueto already in place.
