Well, I did continue to watch, although not every game and usually not a whole game. However, I can agree the last week has been far more fun to watch.
Even when losing there is still the pitching, which is fantastic. The only year I can compare this to, pitching wise, is 1968 with Denny McLain and Micky Lolich. And this pitching staff really is better. The majority of losses were not from the pitching, but lack of hitting. They worked to keep the games close, the bats just didn't produce.
