If you remember the bevy of posts I did last summer leading up to the season about numbers, you know how much I like to look at them and compare. None of these exploits are generally considered "scientific" because I don't get into as much of the minutiae as some will with respect to all of the real nitty-gritty kinds of numbers.
With this season now mercifully over, though, I thought it would be good to take a look at some of the numbers as they compare to recent years to see just how bad this season actually was. Forget the wins and losses (though, we'll look at those too, of course); just how much worse *was* this group?
First and foremost, let's do some quick hitters. We'll compare some stats from this year's team to those of the previous two seasons, which by most accounts were pretty disappointing in their own rights. Get your floaties on; we're diving into the deep end after the jump, so to speak.
Obviously, this is the bottom line. Overall, this year's club was the third-worst record in team history, though it took a crazy March rush to get above the bottom two. With that in mind, let's look at the overall team record, and the month-to-month records.
