I'm inclined to agree that the hitting is the more serious problem. Here is the team's rank for each month in offense and pitching, by runs/era. It's plausible to me that the homerun tear of June/July is, uh, not reproducible, which means the offense could have been even worse. And AFAIK we have little expected help on offense from the minors.

Code:
                MLB Rank
Period        Runs    ERA
April           30      3
May             30      8
June             1     17
July             5     11
August          15     22
Sept            23     25

Pre All-Star    21      5
Post All-Star   22     23
Total           23     14


It's really crazy that they went 30/30/1/5 on offense to start the year.


I have been saying for a while that the June/July 16-6 was likely a fluke based on Cutch and Walker hitting .450 for 3 weeks. Looking at this what is the "true talent" level? Its certainly not 30th, but its probably around 20th which makes sense when you look at the roster. The pitching collapse is more troublesome to me, I look at the SP they have and the talent isn't likely top 10, but I don't think its bottom 10 either. At any rate if you have the 20-24th best offense and the 15th to 18th best staff then you would expect to be a 75 win team.
