    Anyone watching the Jays pitching?

    Incredible is the only word. While the team is still under .500, the stats of the pitching staff are amazing:

    12 runs given up in the past nine games with 3 shutouts.

    a team ERA that is 3.67, and if you include the two closers, the ERA drops to 3.18.

    The Diamondbacks have the best record in baseball and have a team ERA of about 4.60.

    Just imagine if the Jays could actually hit...

    They probably have the best rotation in baseball, when healthy.

    I can see them making a move in July to get some hitting.

    Funny thing is this team was built two years ago for power to make up for the weak pitching staff...

    I'm not a fan of Marcum, I think he's an average pitcher whose really overachieved to date and will regress, but they certaintly have a good 1-2-3 punch in Halladay, Burnett, and McGowan.

    I'd still take the D-Backs, Red Sox (Just imagine when Beckett heats up), Padres, Dodgers, Indians, and possibly the Mets if Pedro ever gets back and stays healthy first though.

    Litsch has been a solid number 5 guy as well, and the crazy thing is Gustavo Chacin was touted as the number 2 guy, but injuries have stalled his progression...

    Just another reason why:

    AL BEAST >>>>> Any other division in baseball
