Worst to First to Worst

I'm surprised Ortiz hasn't come up with some season ending injury so that he could excuse himself from having to play out the string of a lost season.

Didn't they go from worst to first in the previous year? So it's really worst-first-worst. Which only goes to show how much parity there is within the division, more than anything.

Just like last year, when they were a surprise, this is also a surprise.

I knew they weren't as good as their performance and record last year, even though National writers seemed to insist that were the case.

Still, talent-wise they are an 85 win team even though they aren't playing that way.

 

What I love is that this is the baseball of the pre-steroid era. What I always loved about that time was how even the playing field is. Surprises can happen. Momentum matters, and talent is less of a factor.
