The Chicago Cubs dominated the National League Central in 2016. The Cubs rode their historic momentum all the way to their first World Series championship since the 1908 season. The other four division rivals stood no chance against Chicago last season. 2017 has been a completely different story. Nobody has been able to get out of the blocks and take command of the division. It is safe to say the National League Central is the least intriguing division in Major League Baseball in 2017.
Fierce competition exists in the National League West in 2017. Three teams, separated by less than three games, are fighting for their place atop the division standings by the time the postseason rolls around. The possibility of three teams, from this division, reaching the playoffs is very real. The west is not all peaches and cream. This division, however, has still been the most exciting thus far.
