The overall team BA of .248 is pretty pathetic — but a lot of that is due to Teixeira, who you have to figure is not going to be at .200 for much longer, and Cody Ransom, who will soon be replaced by A-Rod. So you have to expect that the offense is going to improve significantly in the not-too-distant future. And if Swisher can keep his early season pace going, they will be scoring a lot of runs.

Nothing here that isn’t obvious from watching the games. The starting pitching has been superb outside of Wang — do the math and the other starters have a combined 2.74 ERA. And the bullpen has pretty much sucked outside of Bruney and Rivera. In fact, Bruney is two-thirds of the way towards a reliever’s perfect game. Brian is clearly the big pitching surprise so far this year.
