Did Greg Walker take a shot against the White Sox pitching stuff?

Merkin writes an article about the 1983 and the 2010 White Sox:

Starting pitching became a prime cause of the White Sox slow start this season, with a 5.20 ERA weighing the team down in early June. The rotation’s 34-15 record, 3.18 ERA and 50 quality starts in the past 68 games emerged as the backbone of the exciting comeback.

“Pitching turned everything around for both teams,” said Greg Walker, a reserve first baseman with 10 home runs and 55 RBIs in 1983, and the current team’s hitting coach. “Everybody looked at that 1983 team as really gutty, coming up with clutch hits.

“Well, it’s easy to get those when your pitchers are shutting people out and you are winning games with low scores. Our starting pitching in 1983 was phenomenal, especially in the second half.”

Not that I disagree with him.
