With the 2012 MLB season just about over, it is possible to look back on the year and evaluate the performance of the players around the league.
There were a number of surprises and disappointments this season. The Baltimore Orioles proved to be a playoff team, while the MLB had to deal with the fact that the National League batting average leader, Melky Cabrera, tested positive for steroids.
Each team also had its own bit of good and bad. It is certainly possible to identify a player from each team that let their franchise down with their poor performance.
