I think the poor fielding can be isolated to certain positions/players:

Flowers has been abysmal

Dunn has played more 1B as Paulie has DH-ed more

DeAza has played more LF, where his routes are terrible

Keppinger just doesn't have starter-quality range at 3B or 2B

Alexei seems to have regressed mentally
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
