June 20, 2004

SI polled 25 team executives, asking them to rank six surprise
clubs of 2004--the Brewers, Mets, Padres, Rangers, Reds and
Tigers--in order of the likelihood they will sustain their early
success. A team received six points for being ranked first, five
for second, four for third, etc. Personnel from the six teams
were not polled. Here are the results (records through Sunday).
