Their starters ERA is 2nd in baseball, but their FIP is 10th. I don't think there's as much difference between those ranks as they've had in previous years when they got off to hot starts, but they're due for some regression nonetheless. They always had a bunch of starters who couldn't strike batters out, but now I guess Locke is really the only one like that. He has 73 Ks and 47 walks, and an ERA just barely over 2. Smoke and mirrors.

The other thing is that their bullpen has thrown the 2nd most innings in baseball, 2nd best ERA and 11th best FIP. If those guys regress or wear down, they could be in trouble.
