This year thus far we rank last in the AL for starting pitching in terms of ERA and are only in front of the Breweres, Padres, and Phillies in the majors. I understand that ERA isn't the be all end all, but our Defensive independent ERA ratio is second worse in the AL with only the powerhouse Yankees rotation below us. To have success, Hammel is going to have to step up and take that next step. He is not an ace, but he needs to build on the steps he took last year. It is time for Tillman and Arrieta to really take that next step (improve control and awareness of situation) or it is time to move on. We have the pieces for a great rotation in the next few years, but right now we need to have realistic expectations given the makeup of this rotation.

PLEASE explain WHY you believe that's the problem.
How about 1 for 23, no rbi's, no runs, no production. It's pretty self explanatory.
