How do we define disappointment? A Poll




Reading bringbackbanks' recent Fanpost "The biggest Cubs letdown, ever" got me thinking: How do we define disappointment?

Apparently, we're headed toward the close of a pretty disappointing season. Of that there is little doubt. The 2009 Chicago Cubs were projected to win 90+ games and, well, that's looking pretty doubtful right now. But will this really go down as the most disappointing season of all time - or even the present decade?

I mean, think about it: We've been given the merciful opportunity to come to grips with our disappointment relatively early in the regular season. Compare our sad fate to the truly tragic predicament of Cubs fans in 1969 - or, heck, the grief-inducing gutpunch we all took last October.

Granted, this team has (more than likely) let us down. Yet, as we see every baseball season, some teams come together, some don't. Last year's team came together - and still failed. That, to me, is a far greater disappointment than this year's debacle. To get your thoughts (and the reason I've created a new Fanpost rather than post this in the aforementioned one) I've added a poll. What do you think?

This is a FanPost and does not necessarily reflect the views of SB Nation or Al Yellon, managing editor (unless it's a FanPost posted by Al). FanPost opinions are valued expressions of opinion by passionate and knowledgeable baseball fans.
