So was Barry Bonds, Doug Drabek and Andy Van Slyke.

Me thinks they had a 'tad' more to do with it.

Amazing, especially since they were in first place for about a week. then there was that 19 inning game in Atlanta.

Yea, the problem was that the pitching came back down to earth. When your entire pitching staff pitches a full run better than their career norms, eventually it will even out. It just hit all at once. Good young team tho, they should be pretty solid next year.

Since 1980 (31 seasons) they've had 7 winning seasons.
