L.A. Dodgers (2019)
The Dodgers had a phenomenal regular season in 2016 as they won a franchise-record 106 games. They routinely captured the division title and fans expected them to make another World Series appearance. It was 31 years since they last won baseball’s grandest prize but everybody assumed this was their year.
However, they crashed out of the playoffs in shocking style against the Washington Nationals. The Nationals beat them across five games in the NLDS and humiliated them at home. At least their supporters didn’t have to travel far to mend their broken hearts. This was one of the most disappointing nights in their recent history (via L.A. Times).
