If anyone is wondering if there is a hotter or better team on the planet right now than the New York Yankees, the answer is more likely not to be.
The Bronx Bombers are red-hot and they are at a historic pace as they continue their 2022 season.
They have basically run through every team they have played so far, posting an MLB-best 29-12 record through their first 41 games of the season.
At the center of their dominance race was the starting rotation, which they continued to defeat the team without breaking a sweat.
A Yankees fan page tweeted ERAs of the Yankees’ five starters, showing just how influential they were.

The Yankees staff became tough
The Yankees have earned the nickname “Bronx Bombers” because their offense has historically been one of the most powerful offenses of all baseball.
But starting pitching has become the absolute strength of this team.
And Gerrit Cole’s staff doesn’t even have the best ERA.
It belongs to Nestor Cortes.
In fact, Jordan Montgomery has the worst ERA out of five starters and his ERA is pretty good at the moment.
When a 3.35 ERA is a starting worker’s maximum, you know the rotation has what it takes to be really good and effective.
This Yankees team is much deeper than everyone thinks.
Anyone who picks the Yankees now looks foolish to underestimate this ball club to finish fourth in the AL East.
Everything is clicking for these Yankees and leading their starting rotation path as they continue to dominate each of their opponents.
