Hunter Pence Did Not Deliver as Expected

With the trades yesterday of Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence, the Phillies effectively waved the white flag on the 2012 season, and for all intents and purposes they closed the book on arguably the greatest era of baseball in the franchise's storied 129-year history.

Whereas Victorino was a Rule 5 guy who blossomed into an All-Star in Philadelphia, along the way being a major factor in the Phillies' 2008 World Series, Hunter Pence's short tenure as a Phillie can only be described as a disappointment.

The only other era in the franchise's history that was comparable to this one was the time between 1976 and 1983. Next season will mark 30 seasons between the two greatest periods in Phillies' baseball.

Here is a look at the 10 biggest disappointments over the past 30 years in Phillies baseball.
