Welcome back to BCB After Dark: Your favorite late-night hangout for night owls, early-risers, new Parents and Cubs fans abroad. Pull up a seat and bring your own beverage. The floor show will start any minute now. Be sure to tip your waitstaff.
BCB After Dark is the place for you to talk baseball, music, movies, or anything else you need to get off your chest, as long as it is within the rules of the site. The late-nighters are encouraged to get the party started, but everyone else is invited to join in as you wake up the next morning and into the afternoon.
Last week I asked you about who you thought would win the National League Central. I wanted to see if a month worth of games had changed your mind as to who the favorites is the Central would be from when I asked the same question in May.

When I asked in May, the Cardinals were the runaway favorites with 62% of the vote. This time they finished last (I didn’t ask about the Pirates) with 7%.
The Cubs were shut out by Cleveland…
