If you would have told me at beginning of the year that Toronto Blue Jays, Texas Rangers, and Kansas City Royals would be leading their divisions I would have called you an idiot. All three teams aren’t just off to hot starts they are beating up everyone they are playing. As far as the National League goes, no surprises there. The Brewers, the Mets, and the Dodgers are leading the way. However the Reds and Giants are doing pretty well themselves.
When the season ends this is what I am hoping for the playoffs.
Toronto Blue Jays
Kansas City Royals
Los Angeles Dodgers
A year with a all the big market teams with the exception the Dodgers would be good for baseball. No one likes seeing the Yankees, Red Sox, and Mets in the playoffs anymore. A true baseball fan like myself got excited last year when the Phillies played the Rays in the World Series because it was different and new teams got to be there for once. I am really looking forward to the summer and seeing how everything turns out for each team that’s leading their respective divisions. Come October the small markets could be dominating.
