#1...Yep.. Will we be strong enough here against the best teams?
#2..We are as good as anyone. The focus will improve too.
#3..I think the biggest problem here is the last 4 hitters hitting below .230 and in the 100s..Weiters will heat up some. Hardy is who he is. 2b and DH will get better or they will be changed come the deadline...I gotta believe we have enough to be in the race and this will improve the 2nd half of the year.

For me it all comes down to the Pitching. Can we match up at the top of the rotation against the great teams and can we be consistant in the 4/5 spots..Right now we are not there.

Agreed... But we need to do a better job at getting the runner in from 3rd with L/T 2outs. Or getting the runner from 2nd to 3rd with no outs.
