What's Going on with the Bulls?

This five-game slide into second place in the IL South is ugly.

The proximate cause of the last two losses were pitchers — Austin Pruitt (just off the injured list) on Wednesday, who gave up 2 runs to lose the game,  and rehabbing  Anthony Banda yesterday, who gave up three runs after a fine start by Brendan McKay.

Still, we've got to look at all the fine baseball players from days past who simply aren't in the lineup today (although a few may come back). Of the 27 players who've come to bat this year, ranked by OPS, 9 of the top 15 are not with the Bulls.
