Those are some pretty heady stats. Over the last 10 games they are averaging 6.7 runs per game, and if you take Teixeira’s numbers out, the team BA is a gaudy .308. As we’ve been saying, when Tex finally gets it going and A-Rod returns, these guys are going to score a boat load of runs. Ultimately the game is all about pitching, but it’s nice to have this type of hitting to carry the team until the pitching improves.

The pitching right now is downright terrible — but what’s amazing is that there’s nobody performing “just average”. Every one on the staff is either doing great or stinking it up. Half the guys have ERAs well under 3.00, and the other half are 5.90 or higher. That’s weird. But it also has to change, and change fast.
