Interesting Thought on Pitching

Quote from Curt Schilling, 2010 :

However, if they are offensively challenged, you can feel that as a starter and you begin to grind in a game far earlier than you would with an explosive offense behind you. That might not show in April, but after 100 games it does, in the rotation and in the bullpen.

Today is Game 113. In this 8-game stretch (losing 7 out of 8) the Giants pitching staff has a 5.15 ERA. Offense has scored 2.3 runs per game in that period. 

It caught up to the Padres last season, and there's plenty of reason to believe it's catching up to this team as well. 

I'm not adamant on the idea, but it makes sense despite how bad of an analyst Schilling has proven himself to be on ESPN.
