There have been underachieving teams so far this year. Here are some of them:
Tampa Bay - Tampa is defending A.L champs. They are currently 5-9. They didn't lose any big names from last year's team. They brought in Pat Burrell from defending champs Philadelphia Phillies. I, along with many others, thought Tampa would be at the top of their division thus far. Hopefully for Rays fans, they turn things around and prove they weren't a one year thing. They are last in the AL East.
Philadelphia - The Phillies are defending world champs. They did have key losses such as Geoff Jenkins, Pat Burrell, and Adam Eaton. Even with those losses, they should still be above .500(6-6).Don't get me wrong, i love the Phillies, but hopefully, they get their act together. They are second in the NL East.
New York Mets - The Mets added all-star closer K - Rod to their bullpen. They already had a good bullpen with Santana and Martinez and Billy Wagner. The Mets are currently 6-7. They are third in the NL East
These teams are definitely underachieving. Hopefully, they can turn their seasons around.
