They got off to a similarly slow start last season but got going in May. I know one season doesn’t really have any bearing on the next, but regardless, I think they’ll do the same. Julio Rodriguez (pictured) has been good, Jarred Kelenic has seemingly become the player he was touted to be as a prospect, and four of their five starting pitchers have been good. There’s no reason they shouldn’t have a winning record before long. They even have a positive run differential, so they may have just had some bad luck so far.
