Despite the poor game Monday, and sample size caveats aside, our pitching staff still ranks 4th in the league in ERA.
In a related, even more stunning development, guess which AL pitching staff leads the league in strikeouts?
Yes, it's the boys in blue. I know, I know, it's just an 8 game stretch - but how many 8 game stretches has our pitching staff lead the league in Ks during the last decade? Without doing the exhaustive research, I'm just gonna go out on a limb and say ZERO! So this early season success has to mean something, doesn't it?
