Also the D-Line has played much better. I don't know how you can say missing Luke isnt a huge deal. He is the leader of the defense and the best player on the defense. He just became the highest paid MLB for a reason.
For real, a lot of people acting like Luke wouldn't make much of a difference and that AJ is fine. Sure he's done alright, but Luke got the most money for an MLB ever for a reason. He's a difference maker.
