They have no position players ready to come up and take a spot on the bench or fill in for someone if there's an injury, and that's pretty sad.
There should be a constant stream of both position and pitchers ready yearly, to at the bare minimum, come up and fill a bench slot adequately. Pitchers were able to fulfill that task this year, position players have not been able to do this.
