Yes, its's true! The New York Yankees have rocketed back into the standings! They have been on a tear in the last few weeks going from second-to-last to tied for the top of the AL East. There have been ups and downs in the Yankees lineup, but mostly the lineup and hitting has been solid.

There are two Yankees batting over .300 with Robinson Cano and Derek Jeter hitting a .311 and .305, respectively.

There are also 5 Yankees with 10 or more home runs. Teixeira has 20, Damon has 14, Swisher and Cano both have 12 and Matsui has 10.

However, there have been setbacks, with the return of the now almost despised A-Rod hitting a .212 with nine home runs. The pitching staff has not been doing well either with an average 4.43 ERA.

No Matter how down this writer can get on the Yankees, they are still doing very well. They are 37-28 which is a win percentage of .638 which is fantastic for the Yankees. This writer is looking forward to the rest of the season for the Bronx Bombers.
