The Yankees have scored 554 runs in 99 games, a pace that will give them 907 or so for the season. They scored 789 runs last season, so it would seem signing Mark Teixeira and trading for Nick Swisher worked out pretty well.
How well-balanced is the offense? Here’s a breakdown of home runs:
The OBP is pretty well-balanced, too:
The Yankees lead baseball in runs, home runs, OBP, total bases, OPS and walks. They probably could use a pitcher — starter or reliever — via trade. But don’t lose sight of the fact that their offense is going to produce a ton of runs and erase a lot of mistake that will happen on the mound.
The Yankees have 10 players with OBPs above the league average and they could end with seven players with 20+ home runs. They had three players with 20 home runs last season.
If this team stays healthy, it would win 100 games without breaking too much of a sweat.
