No surprise to see the Mets doing so well, but the Marlins clearly come in second. One of the biggest surprises are the Pittsburgh Pirates, who have played the best baseball in the Central since the All-Star break. They played well below their Pythagorean record in the first half, so it's not surprising to see them rebounding quite well right now. If there's one thing I like about the NL Central, it's the parity. Every team (except maybe the Cubs...) is decent, but no team is actually, genuinely good.
