The 2009 Yankees currently have 7 players with 400+ PA and an OPS+ >=120. If New York can keep this up, they will become only the third team in baseball history to have 7 players with 400+PA and an OPS+ >=120. The others to do it were the 1993 Tigers and 1978 Brewers.

Of course, the 1993 Tigers had no pitching and the 1978 Brewers had the Yankees and Red Sox to deal with in the A.L. East that season.
But, wait, there’s more! Jorge Posada doesn’t have 400 PA yet this season – but, he will soon. So, that would give the 2009 Yankees 8 players with 400 PA and an OPS+ >=120. So, does that make the 2009 Yankees the most dangerous and deepest starting line-up of all-time? What do you think?
