MLB Preview 2019: Which teams will disappoint this year?

There can only be one World Series winner and six division champs. Inevitably, that means a few teams will end the 2019 Major League Baseball season disappointed.

Some teams obviously don’t care too much about winning this year. Others have reputations — either surprising finishes or dominant performances — to keep up. Just look at the NL East. It’s so competitive that disappointment is a guarantee.

Who will be the teams that reach the point of disappointment? We asked our crew of MLB opinion-havers for their picks. If your favorite team is listed below, we apologize in advance. Just know that, in at least one instance, the same team is also on our list of potential surprises. Baseball is wild like that.

So, do we concur with these nominees, and, if not, who would we pick instead?
