The hitting stat doesn't sound too awful except this achievement was accomplished in 1027 ABs by the intrepid octect of Bay, Cedeno, Torres, Nickeas, Shoppach, and spare parts Lewis, Rottino and RJohnson. That cost us $21M in salaries. They wil not be missed. One point is that the bench, outside of some pop from Nieuwenhuis and Valdespin, stunk out loud. It's usually the least cost line item but makes a big difference late in games.
Another sore point was who filled in in the second half after Santana and Gee went down at the ASB. While Harvey did well and CYoung did very well after Pelfrey was hurt in April losing that third starter just killed the team. Hefner, Batista, McHugh and Schwinden combined for a 5-15 record with an ERA of over 6.00 (nobody had an ERA under 4.85) in 24 starts....awful. If Dickey is traded we need to re-sign CY and maybe another decent #5 candidate if Mejia and Familia aren't ready or there is an injury. Let's hope SA pays attention to the end of the pen and the bench this year.
