The Philadelphia Phillies' list of regrets for the 2012 season runs a mile long and narrowing it down to just one for each player was no simple task.
That's pretty much the regular season in a nut shell for this Phillies team. They came into the regular season as a favorite to win the National League East in spite of losing Ryan Howard and Chase Utley to the disabled list early.
But that's what name recognition will do for you. There were All-Stars up and down the roster. The pitching staff had three ace pitchers and a closer that's been to the All-Star Game. Two third of the outfield had been to the All-Star Game, but neither of those players survived the trade deadline.
The season just wound up being a big snowball and a steep hill for this club. A tiny snowball at the beginning of the season just kept picking up momentum and rolling down the hill until it couldn't be stopped.
Now, we're looking at one of the most disappointing teams in baseball with a list of regrets that are enough to depress even the most casual of fans.
But like I said—it's just been that kind of season for this Phillies team.
