"I think (our plan) is working. Yes, we got last place. Yes, we were 10 games better," Monfort said. "Yes, we had three pitchers, four starting pitchers, whose winning percentage was 61 percent. So if you had a fifth, just like the other four, and you had a bullpen that did its share of the deal, you would win 98 games. That's a lot of games."
