Most Disappointing Team so far

Postby Mookie4ever » Sat May 11, 2013 12:25 pm

LA Dodgers - 13-21 - Top payroll $220 M - DL - Hanley, Grienke, Billingsly
Phillies - 16-21 - 3rd payroll $170 M - DL - Halladay
LA Angels - 13-22 - 7th payroll $128M - DL - Weaver
Toronto Blue Jays - 13-24 - 9th payroll $117 M - DL - Reyes, Santos, Josh Johnson

And who has a chance to turn it around.

I think both the Dodgers & Jays have been terrible so far - I voted LAD like you voted TOR because they're our teams !+) but I think the Dodgers still have the best chance of coming around.

I voted for the Angels because their disappointing season hasn't been mainly because of injuries. I think the Dodgers have the best chance to turn it around, but I don't think any of these teams make the playoffs.

Gotta vote Dodgers here, their payroll is out of this world and they can't even sniff .500, just atrocious, even if they've gotten nothing out of Hanley and Greinke yet.

Funny thing about the dodgers is that the wrong people are getting hurt. Instead of Hanley and greinke, it would be way better if ethier or Crawford would go down (as expected) then it would be time for Puig-mania! And if he were to come up and be scorching hot, that can provide the type of momentum change to swing a season.

Dodgers just need something to get behind and be excited about. It just seems like they're going through the motions right now.

I didn't expect any of those teams to come in 1st but out of the bunch the Dodgers surprise me the most. I may have picked them 1st just because I don't have a lot of faith in the Giants either.

The Angels don't "disappoint me" so much, since I expected this team would fail. Bad starting pitching plus I had a feeling that 2 of 3 of Hamilton, Pujols or Trout would flop.

Of all the fantasy magazines I bought or read, many of them were luke warm on the Jays. A lot of them thought San Fran (as returning champs) would still beat the Dodgers but I don't think any magazine or online site I read didn't predict the Angels to win their division. So I guess I'd go with the Angels as most disappointing based on that.

So personally - the Jays

Statistically - the Angels.

I didn't think the Dodgers would be this bad but I thought most of their players were overrated quite a bit aside from kemp and Kershaw.

I thought the Angels would be better because even if they had declined I thought hamilton and Pujols would be a strong combo with trout and Trumbo.

The Jays disappoint me because I thought they added the most talent and they have gotten nothing from any of their trades.
