This winter, it seems the NL Central has been very active–except for the Chicago Cubs. There have been a few moves, but nothing like many hoped or expected. The offseason isn’t over. But time is running out for the Cubs to be on the right side of this list.

There’s no question that it’s been a wild offseason in the NL Central thus far. It appears the Cincinnati Reds are making a push to contend now, and the St. Louis Cardinals have gotten tired of not competing for the last three seasons. In a division that’s always been competitive appears it’s ready to take it to another level in 2019. With less than a month until pitchers and catchers report, we wanted to rank our offseason’s of the NL Central, as this will help us get an idea of what to expect from our division this year.

Are the Chicago Cubs done making moves? It does sound like Bryce Harper and Scott Boras will give the Cubs a “final chance” to make an offer. But that’s only because Boras knows the Cubs have the money. Will they use it is the question. I don’t see the division changing much more than it is now unless the Reds get J.T. Realmuto.
