Ok folks.

What team(s) do you think could be in trouble heading into 2019?

What team(s) do you think will surprise in 2019?

I think the Indians are in trouble.  Their outfield situation is a disaster.  Their bullpen is just as much a disaster.  I"m not really ready to anoit the Twins yet (learned my lesson), so while I'm not convinced they Indians arent winning the Central, they will be lucky to win 1 game in the playoffs I think.

I also think the Cubs are in trouble potentially.  Their starting staff scares the shit out of me.

Surprise teams.....  The Padres is an easy call.  But I think they 'potentially' could be a solid third place team.

I also think the Reds are going to be a good squad, maybe even contend for a second wild card, if they can get any pitching.  Really like what they did this winter.  

And go.

I don’t think the Brewers will have the results they had last year.

Teams in trouble - 

Brewers: last year was awesome, but that rotation is going to crumble this year 

Indians - they seem to have lost that “middle class” of their roster that really helped elevate their weaknesses. Those get exposed this year 

Surprises - 

Reds: I’m picking them to win the Central outright. They have all the peices. Key here will be if they can find a way to play together early 

Angels: Thats right, Mike Trout in a playoff game. Bour will bounce back and give them a lefty power bat in the middle of the order.

Speaking of the Angels, I'm intrigued by what Matt Harvey will/can do.  I'm hearing positive signs and hopefully he will get serious and get it figured out.

Mentally he is there, now just a matter of if the physical happens.

I dont think they have nearly enough pitching but still.
