At first I misread "Andruw Jones" as "Chipper Jones"(I'm tired cut me a break). I was about to yell at my computer.

LOL
I may be biased as both played for the Braves but Andruw without a doubt is deserving.


Chipper is underachieving too.

i would vote willis for the american league, but he sucked last year in florida too. my vote would have to go to the entire detroit tigers team in this situation.

the national league player who has been the biggest disappointment would have to be francoeur. if you get demoted to AA during the season, you're certainly a big disappointment.

:confused: I'm sorry but a 1.120 WHIP 2.47 ERA 157 ERA+ with a K:BB of 3:1 is bad? **** man whats good then?

Hell Cabrera has an OPS of .838 did you want .950?

i don't agree with the people who are voting for verlander for biggest disappointment in the american league. his first 9 or 10 starts were very inconsistent, and a 7-9 record with a 4.15 era is nothing fantastic, but he has turned it around in a big way lately. he has given up 2 earned runs or fewer in 8 of his last 10 starts, and has a 5-2 record with a 2.82 era during that span. the overall numbers are kinda blah, but do your homework before you vote for him, because he has arguably been the ace of that staff over the last 10 starts.

When you think of all the talent Verlander has, it's hard not to say that this season has been a dissapointment for him so far.

AL Bedard

NL Rich Hill :(

Tough to say Hill is underachieving since that kind of implies that he's actually achieving something and not hanging out in AZ working on mechanics.

I'll go Bedard for AL and Myers for NL. They're the 2 guys I'm most disappointed with anyway. For those who responded with Dontrelle, what about his last 2 ****ty seasons made you think he'd have more success in the AL?

The idea is to name the biggest however. Saying Verlander is the biggest disappointment is asinine. He's not even the biggest disappointment on the team.

Good point... I agree with you. However, there is no question that Verlander has had a disappointing season.

Disappointment (Player):
AL: Miguel Cabrera (Mine because I expected him to be a frontrunner in the MVP race and he's not even in the discussion) Ortiz is close too
NL: Brett Myers (am a phillies fan) A.Jones is close too because I had him as a comeback candidate.

Disappointment (Team):
AL: Tigers
NL: Diamondbacks

Surprise (Player):
AL: Cliff Lee
NL: Volquez

Surprise (Team):
AL: Rays
NL: Cards (I expected them to finish last in the Central, not competing for the Title)
