Will the Cubs be the top team of both Central divisions?
Bruce Levine, Len Kasper and Jim Deshaies joined Cole Wright on Cubs 360 Daily to discuss the newest development in what the MLB schedule will look like for the Chicago Cubs. Over the 60 games, 40 games will be against divisional opponents in the NL Central while the other 20 will be against the AL Central.
Kasper believes that this could be to the Cubs’ advantage.
“Don’t discount the Twins,” Kasper said. “On paper, the Reds and the White Sox have improved a lot. They need to go out and prove it, however. I would expect, on paper at least going into the year, the Cubs should be one of the best, if not the top team, in the central divisions.”
Deshaies believes that the NL Central will be a close call for 2020.
“I think we got four teams that all have a chance to win [the NL Central] division,” Deshaies said. “It would be no shock or suprise if any one of those four teams [in the Cubs, Cardinals, Brewers and Reds] ended up winning this division. As for the AL Central…the Twins are probably the best team…The Cleveland Indians…are not going to be easy to beat.”
