Nate Silver Likes the Brewers Over the Cubs

With every talking head screaming about the resurgent Cubs, it's nice to see an objective analysis still giving the nod to the Crew:
"Although this sort of point-by-point comparision can inherently be misleading, it’s surprisingly hard to construct an argument that the Cubs have more talent top-to-bottom than the Brewers. Couple that with the three-and-a-half games that the Brewers have in hand, and I would rate them as perhaps 5:2 favorites to hold onto the Central..."

BP: Cubs versus Brewers

Of course, this probably presumes that Sheets doesn't miss more than two or three starts. Let's hope that is the case.
