Yankees Rule the Roost

by @ 5:55 pm. Filed under 2011 Yankees

Alright, we’re in the closing days of the first month of the season and the Yankees are the only team in the division with a winning record.  12-6 isn’t that shabby and even better, the Yankees are getting it done within the division with a 6-3 record in the AL East.

Chicks dig the longball and that’s what is helping the Yankees get it done.  They’ve hit more home runs (36) then any other team in baseball and they’re also the only team with a .503 slugging.  Curtis Granderson looks like he’s poised for a bounce back season and he has 7 home runs to go along with his .290+ batting average.  Right behind him are Mark Teixeira and Jorge Posada with six home runs a piece.

The pitching hasn’t been all bad either.  CC Sabathia and A.J. Burnett have made for a nice one-two punch and even Bartolo Colon has looked solid.  Rafael Soriano needs to turn things around but Mariano Rivera has done his job.  In fact Trevor Hoffman’s 601 saves isn’t out of the question.

Next up are the White Sox with a four game series.    Then the Blue Jays come to town.  Yankees tickets don’t appear that hard to come by right now but my guess is, once this team heats up, it’ll be a sellers market.
