Bullpen Taking Too Much of the Load

Prompted by a poster's comment at brewerfan.net, I took a look at what percentage of the total innings has been pitched by Brewer starters this year, compared to the rest of the NL. Here you go:
TEAM           G    St IP  Tot IP Start%
Arizona 37 226.0 325.2 69.5%
Florida 35 207.2 306.2 67.7%
San Francisco 38 227.1 336.1 67.6%
Cincinnati 38 226.2 340.0 66.5%
LA Dodgers 38 226.2 341.1 66.3%
Washington 38 224.2 338.1 66.3%
NY Mets 37 222.1 339.1 65.5%
Atlanta 37 212.2 325.0 65.3%
Colorado 38 219.1 339.0 64.6%
Chicago Cubs 37 209.2 324.0 64.6%
Pittsburgh 38 207.2 330.1 62.8%
San Diego 38 215.1 350.2 61.4%
St. Louis 38 206.0 336.1 61.3%
Philadelphia 37 194.0 329.0 59.0%
Houston 38 199.2 339.1 58.7%
Milwaukee 38 173.1 334.2 51.8%
----------------------------------------
63.7%

With about one quarter of the season over, the Brewer starting pitchers are averaging less than 5 inning a start. Unsurprisingly, that's good for dead last by a WIDE margin. Not a good sign, especially when your bullpen has a below average 4.53 ERA so far.
