has shared the third installment today of MLB 10 The Show PS3 predictions, this time covering NL Central.
To quote: Here are our MLB 10 The Show predictions for the http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/standings/. This division has some good teams and some questions marks which will make for an interesting year in 2010.
The http://stlouis.cardinals.mlb.com/index.jsp?c_id=stl have the best player in baseball, probably one of the best ever, in http://cardinals.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=405395, and with http://cardinals.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=407812 protecting him in the lineup and http://cardinals.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=112020 on the mound, it's tough not to slot them in as the favorite for first place, and a contender to win it all in October.
The http://chicago.cubs.mlb.com/index.jsp?c_id=chc had a tough '09 season, but hope that http://cubs.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=117601 and http://cubs.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=407296 can right the ship, along with help at the plate from http://cubs.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=150093, who needs to bounce back from a sub-par season last year.
The http://milwaukee.brewers.mlb.com/index.jsp?c_id=mil have a legitimate superstar in http://brewers.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=425902, but need a lot of help on the mound. We'll see if http://brewers.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=451596 and http://brewers.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=150116 can get the job done as the rocks of their rotation. And then there's the http://pittsburgh.pirates.mlb.com/index.jsp?c_id=pit who haven't had a winning season in 17 years... yes 17 years!
It seems unlikely that they'll break .500 in 2010, but at least they have some young talent in guys like http://pirates.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=457705, might be a sign of good things to come (ok, maybe not). The http://cincinnati.reds.mlb.com/index.jsp?c_id=cin, on the other hand, might be turning a corner with big bats in http://reds.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=408252 and http://reds.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=458015 anchoring a strong lineup.
We'll see if they can put it all together and contend for the crown. Lastly, we have the http://houston.astros.mlb.com/index.jsp?c_id=hou who can usually guarantee 15-20 wins from ace http://astros.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=400061. If http://astros.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=204020 and the rest of the team can pull their own weight, they just might have a shot.
Here's a look at our final National League Central predictions video showing you which teams will come out on top this October according to MLB 10 The Show. Welcome to The Show!
