It is hard to assess the inadequacies of this team when they are facing the top tier pitching that Major League Baseball has.
Rich Harden, a resurgent sinkerballing Barry Zito and today Randy Frickin' Johnson.

How would the bullpen stack up against an above average offense?
Soon we will face league average pitching and competent hitting and then we can assess the club, but before that, let's neither panic nor abandon analysis off things amidst the confort of a 6+ game lead.
