What if...

The following is a re-draft of the top 10 picks from each draft from 2005-2013. Obviously some of these picks were/would have been traded as prospects, so the possibilities are endless.

How did you determine the top 10? Based on WAR alone, in 2008, Posey was the best player drafted, and it hasn't even been close. (41.7 WAR compared to 19.8 for Kimbrel) .

we found the Cubs fan, everyone.

19 Mar 2019 01:55:32
The Cubs winning the division by 16 games is the most ridiculous thing I've seen on this site, perhaps ever.

20 Mar 2019 15:10:38
1, not a Cubs fan.
2, in the past six seasons, at least one team has won their division by 12 games or more.
3, the Cubs now have Hamels and Darvish (combined for 20 starts for CHC last season) replacing Chatwood and Montgomery (4.75 ERA combined last season) .
4, They get Bryant back (missed 60 games last season) .
5, They're one of the deepest teams in the league to offset injuries.

They may not win by 16, but they will win 100 games and easily win the division.

20 Mar 2019 15:31:57
The NL Central is probably the best division in baseball. The Cardinals got better. The Reds got better. The Brewers are really damn good. To suggest the Cubs, who didn't even win the division last year suddenly take an improved division by 16 games is completely laughable.

You also have the Brewers losing 12 more games from 2018. Did you think last season was a total fluke?

As far as "deepest team". I'm confused by that suggestion. They have literally zero farm system. Their bullpen is atrocious. Their bench depth isn't what it was praised to be. And several of their "stars" aren't that good (Zobrist, Schwarber, Heyward, Happ) .

They might win the division. It will, by no means be "easily".

21 Mar 2019 16:23:44
Flawed logic, you completely ignore the Brewers won the division last year and yes it was because of the one game playoff. But they have improved from last year, the Cardinals have gotten better, and the Reds have gotten better, and the Pirates are the Pirates, so winning the division by 16 games and winning 100 games in that division won't happen.

That Cubs prediction. Yikes.
