    There are a dozen ways to look at how good a team’s offense is. We could look at runs per game. We could look at a team’s on-base percentage and slugging percentage. This morning’s coffee perhaps gave an idea for a little different way to look at a team’s offense. The thought was brought on by the current 40-game streak the Yankees are on in scoring three or more runs, the third longest in the live ball era. That run shows that the Yankees are a tough team to dominate by a pitcher. David Price had the last dominating start against the Yankees and the Yankees still won that game. R.A. Dickey had a phenomenal run going…until he reached the Yankees. Jered Weaver got a win against the Yankees but at a serious knock on his ERA. So how can we look at how hard an offense is to dominate? The game score.

    Joba Chamberlain made his third appearance with the Gulf Coast League Yankees today, working a perfect first inning while striking out two of the three batters he faced. In his four innings of work in the GCL Joba has yet to allow a hit or a walk, and has struck out six. He should be moving up to a higher level of competition soon, most likely High-A Tampa.
