The Houston Astros and Tampa Bay Rays are two of the biggest surprises through the first three months of the MLB season.
Houston finished 2014 with the fifth-worst record in baseball last year, going 70-92. Tampa Bay wasn’t much better, finishing 77-87 and in fourth place in the American League East.
Now, 70-plus games into the 2015 season, both teams lead their respective divisions.
Houston has flirted with the best record in baseball several times already this season and holds a five-game lead in the AL West with a 43-32 record. Tampa Bay’s record is close behind, as the Rays sport a 41-33 record and entered Friday atop the AL East.
The terrific first-half performances beg the question of which team has been the biggest surprise of the season. Find out how fans voted in the Dunkin’ Donuts Poll results video above.
