This is the third segment of an eight-part series handicapping the NL Central based on a position by position analysis of teams using a variety of projection systems.
Part 1 (Intro, C-1B) | Part 2 (2B, 3B, SS)
Were not talking rocket science here, just a quick look at offense and a cursory glance at defensive whizzes (or dunces). Im using ZiPS as my projection base, but I have CHONE and Marcels around here as well if you find fault in a particular players numbers. Feel free to call me out in the comments; Ill do my best to explain my reasoning.
