How is their division easier to win? They have the Cardinals and Reds, 2 of the best teams in baseball in it.You must be out of your mind to say their are a dozen team in the AL better than the Reds and Cardinals. I don't know if you have noticed but the NL has pretty much won the World Series every year lately , and the Cardinals have as potent a lineup as just about anyone , and good pitching. Oh yeah, just won the series over Texas a couple years ago.
