It’s not a 90 win team as constructed. Even with a better start. Bullpen is still weak and the lineup has too many holes. There are only a couple of lineup positions that are better than the league average.

Not sure that's true. The two headed catcher position has 14 home runs and 58 RBI. Gomes is only hitting .211 but Suzuki is hitting .270. Together they're close to the production of say a Bryce Harper.
Between Adams, Zim and half of Howie at first base they have 20 HR, 72 rbi, Since a bad start Dozier is hitting for average and power 14 home runs 33 RBI. Add on Howie's other half and together they have 20 home runs and 57 RBI.
Turner and Rendon are above average. The out field is good with Soto, an improving Robles and Eaton. The team is deep and has power.
