In 2011, it could be argued that the National League Central was the toughest division in the National League. The division boasted two playoff teams in the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals and also the World Series champions.

However, 2012 seems to be a year of turnover for the division. Two of the divisions best hitters have moved on to greener pastures with Prince Fielder signing with the Detroit Tigers and Albert Pujols signing with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Even the players in the division have a complete change of image as Ryan Braun is dealing with a positive drug test result from back in November.

There's been so much change in the NL Central, that one of the teams in the division is leaving the league all together in 2013.
