What a difference a year makes. Comparisons at the 81-game mark from 2006 to 2007, in addition to nine more wins:
Team BA: .264 (2006); .270 (2007)
Team OBA (this means you, Dusty): .314(2006), .329 (2007)
Team SLG: .402 (2006); .419 (2007)
Team ERA: 4.93 (2006); 3.94 (2007)
Let's stop right there. Team ERA a full run lower -- that's a big part of the reason this team's doing so well, and almost all of that is accountable to the starters, who are at 3.89 this year compared to 5.33 at the same time a year ago.
Keep up the good work!
