While our pitching staff is better this year, it's not better to the degree that many think.
We are currently third in the major leagues this year with a .711 DER.
Last year we were 29th at .673, in 2007 we were 25th at .678, and in 2006 we were 21st at .682.
You knock between .038-.029 off the average pirchers BABIP and you will have exceptionally better pitching.
Defense is not overated, especially with how it effects your pitching staff.
