True. Cueto going down was a blow, but Latos stepped up for us big time in game one. I'd still take their staff over ours, but it's very close. I agree that that if healthy, our lineup should be much improved.
Frankly, once the regular season is done, you need to get hot. It's all a crapshoot, really. 97 wins means nothing on the first day of the postseason.
