Terrible NL Central Update

Wasn't the NL Central supposed to be the worst division in the NL, if not the whole of major league baseball?

Currently, the NL Central sports:
  • the teams with the 2 best records in the NL (Chicago, St. Louis)
  • three of the 6 (!) teams that are above .500 in the NL (Milwaukee plus, obviously, the Cubs and Cards). Florida, Philadelphia and Arizona are the only other teams in the NL with a winning record
  • 5 of the top 8 teams record-wise in the NL (both Houston and Pittsburgh are 1 game under .500)

Philadelphia and Florida are the only two NL teams outside of the division that have managed a winning record against NL Central teams.

In contrast, only Cincinnati is under .500 right now against the other two divisions (and only barely, at 19-20).
