I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday. I apologize for all the site downtime, in case you've tried to check in over the last few days. It's way out of my hands, of course, but I feel bad nonetheless.
Tomorrow I'll post Part II of my very early preview of the division by looking at the Cubs, the Pirates and the Reds (read Part I here, which focused on the Astros and Cardinals). If you didn't read my seat-of-the-pants win projection last week, you might want to check that out, too.
Also, a few of us SB Nation bloggers are talking about a NL Central roundtable, perhaps in January, so keep an eye out for that!
