Of win streaks and mediocrity


In 2012 the longest win streak the team had was 5 games, and the most they got over .500 was 4 games.

in 2013 the longest win streak the team has had is 5 games, and the most they got over .500 was 9 games.

Why is this ?

the team wRC+ for the last two years is 94, ranking 20th in MLB, 9 th in the NL

the team ERA- over this span is 97' ranking 18 th in MLB, 9th in the NL

the team UZR over the the last two years ranks 8 th in MLB , 3rd in the NL

its all added up to a 152-150 record , The team has had below avg offense and pitching, but very good to excellent defense, which brings them up to mediocre/ avg overall

we have discussed and debated the individual moves, trades, signings , promotions , player development, etc ad nauseum, and will continue to do so. But there is no sugar coating this situation. The only thing consistent about this team as constructed is its mediocrity.

I look forward to the coming debates about how to improve the team.
