Well Then.....


They lost closer Joakim Soria and catcher Salvador Perez in spring training - Soria for the year and Perez for the first half of the season.

The lost centerfielder Lorenzo Cain in the season's second series.

Greg Holland followed a bout of ineffectiveness with a trip to the DL.

Felipe Paulino started the season on the DL and has made just 2 starts.

Danny Duffy missed one start and was removed in the first inning of another. He is now out until next season.

Eric Hosmer has a 57 OPS+ and has hit just 3 home runs since the team left Anaheim.

They lost 12 games in a row.

And yet, despite all the above occurring, they are only 4.5 games out of first place.

Amazing.
