Not sure about any other teams, but the Reds and Marlins sure as crap aren't trying to win anything this year.

Cinci needs to totally replace their management team. They've botched their rebuild attempt to an epic degree.

The Marlins nowadays are nothing but a jumped-up farm club for the Yankees (on the model of Arnold Johnson's Kansas City A's of 1955-60) so while it may not necessarily be a matter of trying to lose, it is still a matter of a team not trying seriously to contend in its own right.
