I will be writing a longer post about off season plans for next year in about an hour. However, I want to throw out a few questions to get things started this morning. Is this team still, even with the potential losses of Ryan Dempster and Kerry Wood and others, the best team by far in the National League Central? Which of the other teams can compete? As you look at things are the Astros, Brewers, Cardinals, and Reds on the way up, down, or stagnant? And what are we?
