Some context for NYY lineup challenge this year: Last time NYY were not in top 10 in MLB in runs scored was ’91; finished 16th with 674.

You tell me.
Are the Yankees within the top ten offensive teams in baseball this year?
You know the Rangers, Rockies and Red Sox will score because of their home parks. That’s three. And, the Angels, Blue Jays and Tigers have a lot of fire power. That brings it up to six. And, based on the current state of the Yankees, I don’t see them out scoring those six teams this year.
So, maybe, at best, the Yankees are the seventh highest scoring team in 2013?
Then again, the Brewers, Cardinals and Nationals scored a lot last year. And, the Reds could sneak in there.
Maybe the Yankees are not a top ten scoring team in baseball this year? It would not shock me if that happened…
