MLB's Biggest Busts of the 1st Quarter of the 2013 Season

To say Roy Halladay's 2013 season is a disaster is an understatement.

For an athlete, being labeled a bust might be worse than being labeled as bad or underwhelming because busts fall so far short of expectations that many wonder if they will ever turn back into themselves.

Occasionally, a player turns into a bust just because of time. Athletes age much faster than anyone else, and when the decline hits, it isn't pretty to watch. 

Other times, when a player turns into a bust, it is because we put unfair and/or unrealistic expectations on him due to an unexpectedly successful season. 

There are so many explanations for why a player—especially a Major League Baseball player—is unable to carry his performance from one season to the next, but you just hope it doesn't happen as quickly as it often does. 

As we look back at the first quarter of the 2013 MLB season, here are the biggest busts that we have seen so far.
