As we head towards the MLB All Star break and the end of the first half of the season, there have been a few teams that are surprise contenders; teams that have struggled over the years, but are having a good (or great) season. I will cover a few of them that are doing so, but that will come down to earth before the end of the season.

This is not to say that these teams will drop completely and disappear from contention. Some may contend for quite a while, then fall by the wayside. Some may earn a playoff spot, but won’t be the same team in the second half as it was in the first, and may struggle to get that playoff spot.

    So basically this writer believes every “overachieving” team in MLB will miss the playoffs. Why don’t you add the A’s to that list too lmao.

    I think he’s never heard of the “wild card” or the “trading deadline.”
