The pitching staff has found a solid TOR starter in Cueto, but the other starters minus Leake have took a step back. The bullpen is solid but often under-appreciated because of the lack of wins.
The front office is also in this state of purgatory. (Has been since Oct) They don't want to change things and have this false hope that the team will turn it around. They have several upgrades in AAA but refuse to bring them up. As Marty asked Dusty in the pregame "What make you think 84 games into this year that this team is suddenly going to start winning?" Certainly, there's hope due to their Pythag but they can't be the first team to wildly not mirror it.
