MLB Trade Ideas: 10 Moves That Would Create Separation in the NL Central

MLB's only six-team division is right where we all thought it would be at this point in the season—about as close as Delonte West and LeBron's mother.

The Houston Astros taking up the rear of the NL Central is no surprise, nor is the one game separating the St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds atop the division.
