Hot MLB Teams Bound to Disappoint This Year

Expect a slew of injuries to eventually slow down the Yankees.

The MLB season may be just a few weeks old, but teams are already making major statements as to how the rest of the season will play out—or so one would think.

While a hot start can bode well for the rest of the year, it is tough to keep pace through the 162-game slog that is the baseball season. Scintillating play in April doesn't always translate into wins in the dog days of August.

While all of these teams bust out of the gate, don't expect them to keep pace for the rest of the year. Whether they are in a tough division like the Colorado Rockies or just catching some lucky breaks like the Royals, these teams are bound to slow down at some point.

That's not to say all of these teams, especially those with World Series aspirations like the Oakland A's, will totally flame out. Just don't expect the march to the postseason to be that easy.
