I’m talking team home runs, not “teh rings”, which has helped the Bombers to a Major Leagues-leading 6 runs per game. New York also fields the oldest batting roster in the game (32.6 vs. an MLB average of 29), so “too old” seems to be working for now.
Texas is right behind New York with 5.88 runs per game scored. Where they set themselves apart from everyone is that their pitchers are allowing a mind-blowing 2.62 runs per game.
Derek Holland has had no success against the Yankees in his career (0-4 in five starts) but is undefeated so far this season, while C.C. Sabathia is coming off his best start of the year. Comment away.

Other than the Jeter error, which ultimately didn’t cost anything but more bullets from CC’s arm, this game has been a joy to watch. 6-1 now in the 5th after A-Rod’s 3-run jack and the Yanks still batting. Holland at 95 pitches already and CC looks good.
CC gives up a few more and it’s 7-4 heading to the 8th. No way you can be comfortable against this lineup. We need Robertson and Mo to be on their games.
Jumped the gun on Robertson. CC one out away from closing out the 8th. And that’s it. In 5 pitches. Sweet. Jeter leads off the 9th trying tto go 5-for-5 on the day.
Two rare long flyballs off Mo, but botth caught. 1 more…
Ball game. Excellent. Would be great for Hughes to avoid a pummeling tomorrow but I fully expect him to get destroyed. All the bettter to have this first one as a W.
I didn’t want to jinx it by posting.
