The American League is super stinky this week. Here are the five teams getting stinkified shoutouts right before interleague action starts this weekend...
1. Baltimore Orioles
The stinkiest team of the week is also the stinkiest team of the season. Their 13 wins are the fewest of any team, they’ve allowed the 7th most runs and not one of the team’s starters has a winning record.
2. Cleveland Indians
As if watching the Cavs lose wasn’t bad enough, Clevelanders have to deal with a terrible baseball team too. The Indians are hitting just .246 as a team and have lost six of their last 10.
3. Milwaukee Brewers
The Brew Crew are 1-9 in their last 10 games. During that stretch they scored just 35 runs while giving up 71. Normally two for one is a good deal. But in baseball it’s a trend you want to avoid. Are you taking notes Brewers?
4. New York Yankees
The Yankees are on a three game losing streak and have lost four of five this week. In the last five games both Joba Chamberlain and Mariano Rivera have blown leads, while A.J. Burnett and Andy Pettitte have turned in their wrost starts of the season.
5. Minnesota Twins
The Twinkies lost their hold on first place thanks to some seriously cold bats this week. No team posted a lower batting average in the last week than Minnesota’s .237.
