Teams in Trouble/Surprise Teams

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

He's got three playoff games under his belt!

I'd like to see more, though, yes.

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.

I just feel like they’ve regressed since you became a fan.
