Just throwing the stats out there, no analysis or deep reaching comments, yet! I may delve deeper into these as the season wears on, but for now I figured I would just post them and let the commentors read into and say what they want about them.

My first thoughts are that even though the offense and starting pitching have room for major improvements, the...
