Re: Make your pick - Which MLB team(s) will be the biggest flops & biggest surprises
So whats a surprise/flop with regard to the A's? I say that won't win 90 games this year - I figure they will be 88-74 so if thats a flop then thats what I say. If thats not considered a flop (which I don't conisder it that) then so be it.
I think the White sox flop this year - too hard to repeat, and I think the Indians and the Twins and the Sox end up in a three way dogfight all year long, with the sox not even making the playoffs.
In the NL I think the Mets are the surprise, winning over 95 games and running away and hiding much like the White Sox did last year.
As for surprise player - Kris Benson with the O's wins over 17 games with an era under 3.50.
