18. Detroit Tigers
Not only had David Price and Yoenis Cespedes exited for greener pastures, but general manager Dave Dombrowski has been let go. While the Detroit Tigers still sport a below average record of 51-55, it’s all downhill from here.
17. Arizona Diamondbacks
A 7-3 record over their last 10 games just tells part of the story. The Arizona Diamondbacks, led by MVP candidate Paul Goldschmidt, are actually making some noise in the tough NL West.
16. San Diego Padres
Although the entire baseball world was ultra excited about A.J. Preller’s acquisitions this past hot-stove, cooler MLB-heads realized he was trying to fit a square pegs in round holes. Teams simply aren’t build that way and not unloading Justin Upton and other pieces prior to the deadline will screw this franchise up even further.
15. Chicago White Sox
At 51-55, the Chicago White Sox have decided to stand pat and make a run at one of the AL Wild Cards this season. The only problem is, they won’t make it.
14. Baltimore Orioles
Buck Showalter deserves all the credit in the world to have this lackluster Baltimore Orioles club hanging around in the AL East.
13. Minnesota Twins
Even still, nobody believes in the Minnesota Twins. Still though, they continue to hang around with a 54-52 mark. They fall out of the top 10 though based on a two win mark over their last 10.
