When they were 8-8 and not in the playoffs, there wasn't much to be said. That's middle of the road and although for me "mediocrity" has connotations of being LESS than just middle of the road, 8-8 and not in the playoffs could easily fit the description of mediocre.
For me 5-7 wins is more my definition of "mediocre."
But 12-4 or 10-6 and winning the division and winning a playoff game is not.
From your quoted statement, it seems that anything less than a SB is mediocre. And, to me, that's just a mis-use of the word.
