I still think they need to prove it against the good teams.
Clicking on all cylinders, for me, is putting together an 7 to 10 game win streak where the pitching and hitting both pull their weight (like last year after the AS break). And beating up on good teams, not the Marlins.
I'm happy with what they've achieved considering the injuries. I didn't expect certain guys to struggle as badly as they have.
Definitely a well put together team. Unfortunately the manager is hindering the potent offense with a .235 OBP guy batting second.
2012 10 Game Winning Streak:
1 vs Arizona
3 vs Brewers
3 vs Astros
3 vs Rockies
How many of those teams finished with a winning record in 2012?
One. Brewers (It took a late season surge for that to happen though). That wasn't exactly elite talent teams.

I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.
Some people are Optimists (They see the glass 1/2 full).
Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.
