Keys to Every Last-Place MLB Team Salvaging Their Season

Nobody likes being last.

Think back to when you were growing up. When it came to picking teams for a sporting event, be it baseball, kickball, dodgeball—whatever—we dreaded being the last one picked.

But there isn't one player on a major league roster who can relate to that. Growing up, these guys were the alpha dogs, the kids that were always one of the first two or three to be picked (if they weren't the people doing the picking).

Sitting on a last-place team, failing to meet even the most modest expectations, is as frustrating for them as it is for the fans of their respective teams.

For some of those teams, there weren't even modest expectations placed upon them heading into the season. Players and fans alike knew that it was going to be a long season; progress, not success, was what we were looking for during the regular season.

For others, the 2013 season is shaping up to be a colossal failure—and turning things around quickly has become the top priority of everyone involved.

Let's take a look at what every last-place team is dealing with—and what can be done to salvage their seasons.
