Found March 26, 2012 on The Outside Corner:
It seems that every season there is at least one team that comes out of nowhere to make the general public say, "What? How are they winning? They are supposed to suck." Last year, those teams were the Cleveland Indians and the Pittsburgh Pirates, at least up until the All-Star break. Seeing supposedly bad teams challenge for a division title is always fun and exciting. The only problem is, we never know who this team is going to be. Of course, if we did, then we wouldn't be so surprised. Me, I hate surprises. I have to know who this year's surprise team(s) will be, my intellectual curiosity demands it. We know it won't be the Yankees, Red Sox, Rays, Tigers, Rangers, Angels, Phillies, Braves, Brewers, Cardinals or Diamondbacks. They are already considered contenders. The only way they can surprise us is by playing poorly. That is an equally fun scenario to consider, but we'll save that for another time. We can also safely eliminate the Blue Jays...
