    Default a question for you stats guys...

    What was the reason for our horrendous finish last season? I think we only won like 7 of our last 32 or something like that...

    If I recall, guys like Jones, Cutch, and Laroche were pretty good to great offensively in september. Did the rest of the offense just suck? did the starting pitching fall of a cliff? did the bullpen blow a lot of games?

    Also, given that horrendous record down the stretch, why are so many on here optimistic about having an improved record this season?


    Thanks

    I don't know that I have a specific answer to your main question (aside from "they were bad at baseball"), but here's what I've got on some of the others:

    The offense was pretty bad all year, but was actually at its worst in July rather than later in the year. The only months where they were even decent were April and June where they combined to come out almost exactly average.

    The starting pitching started off very well (or just lucky) in April, then got progressively worse as the season went along. Their second best month was actually September, which wasn't particularly good, but not awful. August was a complete disaster.

    The bullpen barely pitched in April (54 innings), then had to actually work in May and got hammered. For whatever reason they had a very strong June in 84 IP, had an OK July, then just got crushed in the final two months.

    Also, I think we are gonna be better this year, cause I ALWAYS get optimistic this time of year...thru Spring Training and until about May.....when we go half a dozen games under .500 and reality sets in again....and that's probably when I will start drinking again.....
