When every Major League Baseball season begins, most fans and teams have a sense of optimism for their team – whether it be contention for a World Series title or proper steps taken towards rebuilding. Many teams fail to live up to expectations. Some teams fail so much, their failures live in the minds of players and fans for eternity. Here are 10 of the most disappoint teams in the history of Major League Baseball.
Biggest Disappointments In The MLB
2016 World Series Betting
Losing the World Series is disappointing for the fans and players, that team’s overall season cannot be viewed as anything but a success. The Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians each entered 2016 with the first and second longest World Series droughts in the MLB and now – on either Tuesday or Wednesday – one of those teams will end their extreme dry spell. Both Cleveland and Chicago have some great players under contract for next season, but if either team falls flat in 2017 – this could deserve a spot on this list.
Through the first five games of the Series – which the Indians lead 3-2 – the motto has been to get the lead early and avoid both teams bullpen. It may have seemed a little outlandish to think at the start of the season that a relief pitcher could win World Series MVP – Andrew Miller of the Indians and how he has been used in the postseason is going against most conventional baseball logic. There are still – potentially – two games left and a lot can happen over the next 18 innings.
