No it doesn't, we are playing 5 games over our Pythagorean we have our record because the pitching has carried the offense and we have a lights out closer.
We are scoring 4.35 RPG or 0.01 over the league average and have 5 guys over .785 OPS, 4 of those guys over .850 OPS and 3 over .900, the offense should be far better that what we have and having terrible numbers out of the 1st and 2nd spot every game are a major factor to the offensive issues.
