I mentioned your post to my fiance and some co-workers and they want to know what you've been smokin'.
Including today's brutal loss, 6-5 since May 2nd.
4.4 runs/game since May 1st (last 14 games) after averaging 3.7 the first 26 games.
Like I said, the rotation/bullpen needs work since it has regressed and seen injuries. But overall the team is doing better to start the month.
They're currently playing at a 68 win pace for the season, but at a 74 win pace this month.
If they continue to improve, such as chipping away by taking series', then they can challenge for cracking .500 for the year. Gregory Polanco should help when he's called up in about a month.
