Should we just assume that Cal has strong defenses again?

We’ve come to assume that Cal will excel in defense every season. And this year is no exception. But given the loss of so many standout defenders in 2021, are we taking too much for granted this time around?

I can see why this assumption is made. Cal has never finished below his 4th place in total ERA in the Pac-12 in any of the last four seasons. That’s a more impressive stat considering the Bears’ mediocre offense puts additional pressure on their defense, forcing them to turn it on. The longer the field, the less room for error.
