Who's Not Hot - AL
It gets more and more interesting every week in the American League, as three of the teams that were in the thick of the fight for the playoffs last season, including the defending champs, are at the bottom of the league and the bottom of the money standings as well. Check out who is really burning your bankroll as we near 100 games into the 2014 season.

Texas Rangers (39-59, -$2,354) – Is it ever going to end for the Rangers? They've only won four games since the middle of June, and it is only a matter of time until they really just blow this whole thing apart. SS Elvis Andrus is one of the many who should probably be traded before the end of the month. OF Shin Soo-Choo has reached base once in his last 22 at bats. The whole lineup is in shambles, and the starting rotation could be made up of just guys who are on the DL. It's really all over for the Rangers, who are 20 games below .500, and we have a feeling that it could end up getting a heck of a lot worse for them before the end of the season.

Tampa Bay Rays (47-53, -$1,930)
– Meanwhile, the Rays have managed to cut a massive dent into their deficit for the season. They'll never get back to the break-even point, but they could get a heck of a lot closer by the end of the year. They're 23-11 in their last 34 games, and they have shaved 7.5 games off of what was once a 15-game deficit in the AFC East. The starting pitching is starting to come back together with RHP Alex Cobb healthy. However, the bullpen still has some problems, as there really isn't a bona fide closer for this team right now. GM Andrew Freidman still has a big decision to make about the future of LHP David Price, but the feeling in Tampa Bay is that the team is still in it and can really win the whole thing.

Boston Red Sox (46-52, -$1,681) – These Red Sox just don't look nearly as good as the ones who won the World Series last year. 3B Brock Holt, OF Mookie Betts, RHP Rubby De La Rosa… Who are these guys? 2B Dustin Pedroia is having as bad of a season as he has ever had, and it feels like it's wearing off on the whole lineup. The Sox have a number of games this season in which they have been shut out either literally or figuratively, and it just isn't going to get any better than this in all likelihood. The question is whether men like RHP Jake Peavy can really get going again. When LHP Jon Lester is on the mound, these Red Sox are able to be backed. When he isn't out there though, there are all sorts of questions, and it feels like Russian Roulette backing the boys from Beantown.
