This week we're taking a look at some of the most disappointing teams in baseball and got just over a while ago. In the regular season there's plenty of teams making their final push to get that playoff spot if you win that division. The Red Sox on the good side of this Dirk heading toward the playoffs they're trying to win their division. They're one of the pleasant surprises in baseball this year and on the other hand you have these really bad teams teams that we thought would be in the playoffs. And they're nowhere is -- Getting into that October reports that they thought they'd be -- so let's start -- or three most disappointing teams this year. Three most disappointing street right here you know. Gonna start with the Angels that's team with a high payroll obviously very disappointing. Josh Hamilton has not worked out and seems like they might fire their GM and manager or both of those guys. This is that everybody's pre season favorite the Toronto Blue Jays the American League east where they they are in the big east meant. And this is a team I picked to make the World Series doesn't seem like that's going to be happening to watch him now. National -- in my experiences I think the nationals are not just one and and you don't want they are disappointing but I think there have been teams that may be more disappointing. Then they are on my list the defending world champions the San Francisco Giants they win it all it basically bring back the same team. And they're terrible. Also -- among those still you have to put the Angels here for the money that they've spent on the players and on their payroll this year 142 million Arty Moreno needs to figure out what he wants to do do you wanna own a baseball team -- you wanna -- GM he's limited and Snyder a Major League Baseball is building -- fantasy team he's rallied that team stinks wage you're involved he's not listening to his baseball -- people which is really become a problem -- number one -- my list on both the Blue Jays and we'll -- tomorrow -- -- minute but first -- nationals. This is a team as I mentioned a pre season picked for me veto to go to the World Series -- last year they won 98 games actually the best record in Major League Baseball they brought that quarterback. The address some of their areas of need which included close and they bring in Rafael Soriano they traded. For Denard Span. Still they're not getting it done twentieth Major League Baseball on runs with a lineup that has Bryce Harper and it. -- all those other guys now like Ian Desmond pretty good team on paper these guys should be good there are 500 baseball team they're clearly not going to make the class huge disappointment in the nation's capital. I think the reason whether or not on my list I. I hope -- over achieve a little bit last year another like a pleasant surprise so expect them to win the World Series. Like a lot of people work the Blue Jays though I expected him to contend the American League east. I guess not. This team high priced. They increased their payroll. More than 50% of what it once in 2012. That was the biggest increase of any team in baseball last offseason it's clearly not paying off. Twenty and 37. Since their eleven game win streak in June never got at the end of June who just gonna turn this around it won eleven straight. It's 18 and 37 it just a cool seventeen games under 500 since that point. And just the starters that it required whether BRA -- -- or mark early or Josh Johnson reality -- raise over four Johnson's over six. Those guys those guys are all former all stars there were supposed to really bolster that starting rotation it has been the case the Blue Jays. Haven't heard that the -- what Baltimore does -- I'm not that surprised. I -- beginning you're at that the American the -- anybody could finish first anybody could finish lap and I include the Blue Jays and I never bought the height. On the Blue Jays obviously their disappointment when I look at that roster I didn't necessarily think those pieces would fit so. Certainly they're disappointing team and I'm not all that surprised they are where they are from the -- -- -- touch screen those are our most disappointing teams try to get rich went by you guys. Hard to argue with those list that I wanna touch and one thing with the nationals and I was trying to remember. I since you earlier while listening to them this -- with the nationals isn't the guys in the field. I think heat striking out -- manager I couldn't remember who quit on the team who put on eighteen Jim -- And that affecting -- just -- I feel like things just don't ever had anyone in there that's like a Buck Showalter that comment and say hey doesn't matter that where the nationals. You know we've got all these top draft -- -- a ton of talent. Who cares if people aren't sit up there are beautiful new stadium in downtown Washington DC who cares if we had to split its television channel with the Orioles. Go out there and play and win in the at least forget about the Phillies forget about the bats but they don't have never really have a. Yeah my -- for the -- they could do over right now they keep Steve Strasburg in rotation last area and we think this series hasn't set the world on fire by any means. And -- -- you have these great deals that they -- the best record in the majors. And you centuries that I understand everyone's being careful but that's it to go that far and to be in that position. You wonder if they take it back and probably just go and it was just talent but the bills you know. -- ready to go up up north under wants a while the long suffering fans -- realize a lot of when decide today this is the year they're gonna get over the hump and -- -- -- to the point. And that's been 1992 when they went back to back World Series that's the last time in and in the playoffs so it's it's a tough stretch of there. Easily -- the biggest disappointment Cassidy Angels that payroll that lineup that rotation and they did not exceed any expectations normally. Expectations.
