Surprise!

On Saturday, I said that ESPN.com baseball writer Jerry Crasnick had mentioned to me in an e-mail that he would be writing a Twins-related article early this week.

That article is here, in the form of a prediction that the Twins will be the surprise team of the American League in 2006. Crasnick lists the Brewers as the National League's surprise squad.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. Does anyone else feel like we were jinxed last year by the Twins being such a trendy pre-season pick for the World Series?
