I Know We're All In A Funk

Look we just lost a series to one of the worst teams in baseball because of a bullpen implosion.  We also got word that Kendrys is out for the year, but please can we have a little perspective?

 

We are leading the AL West (the tightest division top to bottom) and have the 4th best record in the AL.  We're also much better off getting the Kendrys news now (we can adjust), get early season gut checks of the BP, and generally sort ourselves out (*cough*DFA Mathis*cough*).

We have the best 1-2 rotation in the game right now, our BA is 3rd in the majors, and we're in the top ten in most other metrics.

Is there room for improvement?  Yes.  Do we need more depth, of course.  But in a season that is being widely derided as low scoring and weird, we're hanging in there, showing signs of playing Angels style small ball, and shutting them down with our starting pitching.

I like where we're at right now, precisely because it still feels loose and improvisational out there.  Teams built for the long ball are coming up short.  They're scrapping and scraping to put runs together and get by the other guys.

If we can stay hungry and scrappy I think we'll be happy in October.
