Yankee Lineup Destroying Aces Right Now

Combined Numbers for Chris Sale, James Shields, and David Price this season: 3.02 ERA, 34 W, 12.0 fWAR, 535 K in 530.1 IP

Combined Numbers for Sale, Shields, and Price against the Yankees over the last 4 days: 14.2 IP, 26 H, 18 R (14 ER), 7 BB, 13 K

That’s impressive.  That’s damn impressive.  Say what you want about the overall performance of the offense this year, and there’s not much nice to say about it, but that’s an awesome line to look at.  I don’t care how it comes.  Power display like against Shields, dink and dunk hits like against Sale, or a seemingly endless cycle of hits like against Price, doesn’t matter.  If the Yankees can keep hitting like they have been against the AL’s best against the rest of the AL, they’re going to be in the playoff race all the way to the end.

P.S. h/t to Axisa for calling this out.  I never would have thought to look up the numbers on my own.
