Have you taken a look at the team stats over at MLB.com? In case you haven't, let me give you a breakdown of how the New York Yankees, as a team, have fared offensively in this young season:Batting Average: .281, 6th in MLBHome Runs: 15, tied for 1st in MLBRBI: 46, tied for 2nd in MLBRuns Scored: 49, tied for 2nd in MLB(Stats reflect games through April 9, 2013)The problem was supposed to be the offense, right? Well, so far, that "problem" has yet to materialize. Most of this success can be attributed to a trio of aging veterans plucked from the scrap heap: Kevin Youkilis, Vernon Wells and Travis Hafner. They have hit virtually from game 1, and a few games ago, Robinson Cano finally joined the party.What will happen if Youkilis, Wells and Hafner are still pouring it on when Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson and Derek Jeter return? One of them might have to say goodbye, but I suppose the Yankees will have one of the most potent benches in Major League Baseball.So the offense is clicking.
