Most - not all yet. Need Arrieta, Russell, Almora, and some of the bullpen guys to get to that peak

Thank your lucky stars when you play that bad and win.
Starting pitching hasn't been too shabby so far with IMO their best playoff pitcher going tomorrow.

I'd assume best playoff pitcher would come to exclude the best pitcher, period.
