There are unpleasant expectations, like the Dodgers getting dragged into another bullpen-sapping extra-innings game.
There are pleasant unexpectations, like Dee Gordon turning in another boss-like performance (5 for 6, 2 RBI, 2 SB).
Unpleasant expectation: The bullpen blew a five-run lead.
Pleasant expectation: Puig destroying a fourth-inning home run.
Pleasant unexpectation: The slumping Carl Crawford crushing the game-winning home run.
Pleasant unexpectation: Brandon League pitching two innings for the win.
What can we expect next? Who knows?
