The pitching is terrible. The starters' ERA is next to last in the league.
But the lineup needs work too.
A good lineup scores 8 against this pitcher today.
It was a division-winning lineup in 2010 (obviously without Rolen, which happened occassionally last year). So yes, I think it can be a division-winning lineup...
