Carl Crawford may look like his old self, but he'll soon come back to reality.

More often than not, the hottest starts in Major League Baseball tend to fizzle out by the second or third month of the season.

It’s fairly rare that a player, who hasn’t done much of anything worth noting in the past, all of the sudden is leading the league in a category in April. In some instances, players with great reputations have solid beginnings to their seasons, but are playing at a level higher than they really should be.

Each team in baseball has that one guy that even the fans know shouldn’t be playing this well. In the back of their minds, they know that eventually, he’s going to start hitting or pitching more towards how they have in the past.

For those who don’t know who these players are, ahead lies each team’s player that will come back to Earth in the coming weeks.
