Re: Make your pick - Which MLB team(s) will be the biggest flops & biggest surprises
Biggest Surprise: Milwaukee Brewers--possible wildcard? It'll be tough, but they laid the groundwork last year to be an contender this year.
Biggest Flop: I kinda agree with the Atlanta Braves. Other than losing Furcal, they didn't do much in the winter--while the Mets got much stronger. Philly may even finish ahead of Atlanta.
Biggest Surprise: Toronto Blue Jays. Personally, I think they overpaid at many positions, but they tightened up a few weaknesses during the winter. Not going to win the division, but could be there in the end for a wild card.
Biggest Flop: I'll also say the Boston Red Sox. I don't think that losing Damon will be near as damaging because they were able to trade for Crisp. However, they really need to be concerned about their pitching (especially if Beckett starts off slow). I think Foulke is still a big question mark.
