They’ve missed the playoffs just three times in the league’s 13-year history. They won the MLL title just two years ago. And yet, they found themselves on the outside looking in this year. Looking at the middle stretch of the season, this looked like a surefire playoff team, but a difficult start and finish led to the Cannons downfall. If Boston comes out of the gate firing next season, there’s no reason why the Cannons can’t blast their way to the top of the standings in 2014.
