So Ryan Braun and the MLB threw a huge monkey wrench into my predictions the other day when they lifted the 50 game PED suspension that he was facing. And now, with a healthy Braun this has made the Brewers my favorites to win the division. And while the Brewers no longer have Fielder their lineup is still really good if they can stay

1. N. Morgan OF
2. R. Weeks 2B
3. R. Braun OF
4. A. Ramirez 3B
5. C. Hart OF
6. M. Gamel 1B
7. J. Lucroy C
8. A. Gonzalez SS

And they have the best pitching staff in the Division between Gallardo, Greinke, and Marcum. (Wolf and Narveson aren't really anything to write home about though). And lets not forget that John Axford is a beast.

So while the division is going to be a close one, Ryan Braun not being
suspended for 50 games gives the Brewers a big (possibly steroid enhanced) edge in the Central.

Not that the Cubs' is much better, but the bottom four in that lineup (including the pitcher) is pretty crappy. At least there's that.
