If talent was the problem, we wouldn't rank so high in starters ERA and runs scored. The talent is there. The problem is this team is schizophrenic and has been the entire season. They can look like the best team in baseball at times (hence the third best record in the league), but also look at times like they just don't care. That's a leadership issue, IMO.
