Where the M's stand after 10

Year W L RS RA P/PA BB/PA RC/27
2004 2 8 45 59 3.77 .077 4.57
2005 5 5 55 44 3.74 .076 4.26
2006 5 5 55 56 3.82 .096 5.06

What does this mean? Not much since it's a small sample size, but it is encouraging. The pitches per plate appearances is up significantly as well as the BB per PA, although that could all be due to one game in Cleveland. Still encouraging I think.

Year ERA
2004 4.76
2005 4.49
2006 5.56

After being teased by encouraging performances by Meche and Pineiro both came back with bad second outings. Four upcoming games against the Red Sox followed by three with the Rangers shouldn't help much.
