Wrigleyville23 ranks his disappointment in the 2008 Cubs among prior playoff disappointments (presumably in his lifetime).
The results are indicative of the level of disappointment that the Cubs have inflicted on their fans.
The 2008 squad only ranks as the 3rd most disappointing team, behind the teams in 2003 and 1984. Even though the 2008 version was his favorite team of the bunch. And the 2008 version entered the playoffs as the prohibitive favorite to win the pennant but barely showed up in getting swept by the Dodgers.
That's a lot of disappointment. Ah well, there's always next year I suppose. I wonder if there will be any shakeup on that roster? The Cubs, as presently constructed, appear built for winning the NL Central but not built for winning any playoff games.
