As the baseball season begins, every team has expectations. Some exceed those expectations, while others stumble well below. Here is a look at five teams that have disappointed this season.

5. New York Yankees

In Derek Jeter's final season, the New York Yankees loaded up to have one more October run. However, injuries have devastated the rotation and they are currently seven games behind the Baltimore Orioles in the American League East. It is going to take quite a finish to give the Captain one final postseason.

4. Tampa Bay Rays

With rumors surrounding a David Price trade, this was supposed to be the Tampa Bay Rays' last stand. But as they failed to compete during the first half, Price was dealt. While they are not eliminated yet, it is a stretch to think the playoffs are in their future.

3. Arizona Diamondbacks

The Arizona Diamondbacks looked as if they were ready to compete in the National League West, but injuries and failure to execute have buried the team in the bottom of the division. The only thing that they have managed to do this year is make enemies in beanball wars.

2. Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers were picked by many to win the American League pennant with the addition of Prince Fielder. But as Fielder went to the disabled list, the team went to the basement in the American League. Instead of leading the West, the Rangers have the worst record in all of baseball.

1. Boston Red Sox

It's hard to have a team more disappointing than the Rangers, but last year's World Champion Boston Red Sox are the most disappointing team in baseball. Last season, they went from worst to first in the American League East, and this season they are back in the cellar.
