The National League Central is a strange division, but its a lot like the National League West, the only difference being that the teams in the division are also the only ones in the league with actual divisional titles.
But the Dodgers have no divisional title, the Dodgers do not have the No. 1 seed, and the Dodgers are playing in the wild-card race.
With the Dodgers and Giants in the race for the last wild card, and only the Cubs and Pirates in the hunt for the wild card and no wild-cards left, this week’s installment of the Around the League Podcast breaks down the big picture.
We also dig into what’s coming up in the NL Central, what’s happening with the Nationals and Giants, the Nationals-Braves NLDS rematch and the most interesting offseason moves from the MLBPA.
