Last year's "surprise" was the Colorado Rockies. What team do you think can turn heads this year?

I will go with the Seattle Mariners and/or the Milwaukee Brewers. I think the NL Central will be real competitive this year.

They don't have to be "complete" surprises.

As a big fan of them I have to agree with the Nats being a surprise this year. They should get over .500. Their inaugural year of '05 They were exactly .500, in '06 they were .438 both years finished dead last (5th) in the NL East, last year they were .451 and finished in 4th ahead of the Marlins. Of course with Brian Schnieder catching for the Mets now the Nats won't shoot out too many base stealers.

i am going to have to go with the Devil Rays! improved their pitching
plus David Price and Evan Longoria will be superstars before you know it
they could finish 3rd in the AL West which would surprise everyone

in the NL i am going to have to say the Cubbies!
everyone is talking about the Brewers in the Central
it has been 100 years and if the Cubs actually win the series it will be a surprise
the poor cubs always have horrible luck
soo if they get through the season without any injuries it will be a miracle!


Right now I am looking for BRAD HAWPE, AARON HILL and RYAN THERIOT GU/AUTOS
CHECK FOR MY GROUP BOX BREAKS!
1991, 1993, 1996, 1997, 2000 and 2009 NCAA baseball champions
