I don't think they are headed in the right direction as of now. The bad thing is, we win series for a few in a row, but NO sweeps. Then end up losing 7-10 after that. Then we sweep the Yanks, end up losing 4 of the next possible 6. Series wins are fine, but when it takes you almost half of the season to get only 1 sweep and then follow up on bad losing streaks, it get us to where we are now. We beat the teams we need to beat, then lose to the teams we should beat.
The lineup is in a funk right now, McLouth is losing ABs for Reimold, which is not a good thing. Flaherty, just when he was hitting the ball well, taken out of the lineup.
The lack of scoring runs without the HR ball hurts this team also. Not saying this team can not drive in runs, it relies to heavy on HRs in my opinion.
