My next project......
Permalink  
 


Still have a ways to go but my mind is going 1000 mph as I'm sitting at work bored.  I want to construct a league of teams that didn't live up to expectations or had a bad year following a really good one.  The two (really 4 but it's the same two basically) teams that are sticking out to me would be the Giants from a few seasons ago and one of the marlins teams from the late 90's that won a title then were dismantled.   I was hoping some of you guys could give me a few suggestions of teams that fit this criteria  

 

Another her idea I was floating was a 100 win season get all the teams I have that hit 100 wins and do a season but there is a few teams I'd like for that project that I don't currently own. Maybe I can find a way to combine the two. ether way any suggestions I'm all ears.  Thanks

What about the best teams to not win a title? The 2001 Seattle Mariners for example.

"I want to construct a league of teams that didn't live up to expectations or had a bad year following a really good one."

Interesting idea. I nominate the 1971 Cincinnati Reds.

How about the 1965 Yankees who went from AL champs in 1964 to a 6th place finish in 1965 ?
Almost all the same players were there, but injuries to Maris, mantle, Elston Howard and others really took their toll.

Ditto on the '71 Reds. They immediately spring to mind, sandwiched between the great '70 and '72 teams.

A more modern team is the 2008 Tigers. Coming off a pennant in '06 and then a strong second place finish in '07, they brought in Miguel Cabrera, Dontrelle Willis and Edgar Renteria in the offseason. They stumbled to an 88-loss season in '08 and let down a lot of optimistic fans here in Detroit.

The 1967 Orioles didn't quite live up to the challenge of defending their 1966 championship. At 76-85, they were -12 in pythagorean wins, which makes them even more interesting.

The 1970 Senators may also be to your liking (they are to mine).
Ted Williams worked some first year magic and led them to I believe 86 wins in 1969.
The bottom fell out a year later as the Nats returned to their customary losing ways,
with a 70 win season. It was a great year for Frank Howard, who led the AL in
both homers and RBI.
