Since Starting Pitchers is 70-80% of the game, I disagree that 99% of the time there is better talent out there because 4 of our 5 starters are better than alot of pitchers they are facing.  Our hitters, though not as talented, have performed like minors leaguers for most of the season.  I think this can be blamed on coaching and stubborn strategy.

So that means that the other 20 guys account for only 20-30% of the game.  You seem to grossly overestimate the responsibility of starting pitching for the outcome of the game.
