BASEBALL: Yankees' Amazing Start

As a Mets' fan, I reluctantly mention this article that points out some amazing stats of the Yankees' recent tear. I take some comfort that its from a Boston paper; thus, Red Sox fans also have to share the pain. Some examples:

Entering play [Saturday], they'd hit more home runs (45) than the Tigers had scored runs (43). Their on-base percentage of .388 was 34 points better than the team with the second-best OBP, the Red Sox (.354). The starters' ERA of 2.72 was nearly two full runs lower than that of the Sox starters (10-6, 4.62 ERA). The pitching staff had allowed a league-low seven home runs -- while three teams, the Blue Jays, Devil Rays, and Angels, have allowed 30 or more. They'd walked a league-low 54 batters, 50 fewer than the league-worst Rangers (104). Their defense had allowed just one unearned run in 23 games.
