Texas has officially cooled down after a hot stretch at the end of June and into the start of July. The Rangers are staring down losing three of four in Detroit this week and it won’t get any easier at Fenway Park.
So now you have to wonder when some of these names will be traded. Shin-Soo Choo has some value at the moment but he’s due a lot of money over the next two seasons. I’m interested in knowing how many teams, if any, are interested in his services. The Rangers would probably be willing to dump him for the salary relief alone.
It won’t make them any better in the short-term, nor will it do much as far as acquiring long-term assets, but it will save the club some money. Texas isn’t terrible. It’s as good as any team outside of Cleveland in the Central; unfortunately, it’s not likely to get out of last place in the AL West, even if it continues to play .500 ball.
Boston Red Sox
Boston has won five in a row and has a chance to sweep Kansas City on Sunday. It would be a powerful way to respond to its disappointing series in New York a week ago.
The Sox have this series and then another with Toronto before the all-star break. Considering they’re hot and the Yankees have given away a couple of games this week, Boston looks to be in good position to head into the break with a lead in the division.
So of course a team has a good chance to win a division it leads after 100 games, but it still feels like it’s going to take a gritty effort in the regular season for Boston to do it. It’d be worth it, certainly, to stay out of the elimination game before the ALDS.
That said, a gritty effort in the regular season and a gritty effort in the playoffs take different ability levels and Boston doesn’t have the talent to traverse the best of the American League.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction: Texas is worth a shot.
The Rangers aren’t pushovers so if I’m picking every game in this series, I’m taking the Rangers in each one and hoping they win one or even two.
