Lip: Interesting info. If somone had some time, I think it would be interesting to see if there was a trend in the offense or pitching consistently dropping off in the 2nd half.
Lets not forget. This is a 10 year stretch. The same pitching coach has been in place these 10 years. If the pitching has been the problem in 2nd half swoons, then mabe Coop is the problem. I think we all agree, the offense was the problem this time. But team .ERA went from 3.91 pre All Star to 4.15 post. Runs scored went from 4.8 pre to 4.4 post.
