Sanchez has been hurt and we are 6-10 since his injury. It hurts the balance of the fragile bullpen when they have to be overused in his replacement starts. On top of that Verlander is struggling. Thank goodness for Scherzer's and Smyly's dominance. Our offense has gone from top in the league to 4th ish over the past few weeks, so that means that during that time, it has probably been below average. Bad timing because we really could have used some run support with the pitching staff struggling. All-star break comes at a nice time for the team to regroup. Obviously, we are still in a great position for the rest of the season.
