Summer of Disappointment

As is our August tradition here at Puck Daddy, we turned the mic over to readers, fans and other bloggers for a special summer series. 

This time it was “The Summer of Disappointment”; a.k.a. “Puck Daddy’s Most Disappointing Summer Series,” for the snark-lover in you.

The basic premise: Asking devotees of certain teams to tells us their most disappointing player, team, season, moment, transaction, executive and aesthetic choices in the franchise’s history. Much pain was relived. Much agony was recaptured.

Jen Neale was the curator on this one, and pulled off a marvelous summer series.

Here are the “Summer of Disappointment” entries for all 30 teams. Please feel free to revel in the misery of others.
