The Cardinals are still the superior team here. The Cubs are on the rise, but the Cardinals have had continued excellence for years, a trend that is expected to continue in 2015. The Cubs are close though, and it should surprise no one if the Cubs snag one of the Wild Card spots this post-season. Will they deliver on Anthony Rizzo’s bold prediction of a NL Central crown? Probably not, the NL Central is a tough division, but the Cubs will compete. Meanwhile, look for the Cardinals to continue winning, and you can bet they aren’t happy with just National League crowns, they want rings.
