Starting Five: Torrid Start in Toronto

Posted Apr 24 2009 11:01pm
Starting Five is our wrapup of the previous day's baseball action, with a quick nod to what is ahead.

You Oughta Know ...

That the Blue Jays have the best offense in the American League right now. Toronto has scored 104 runs so far this season, the most in the AL, and 20 more than both the Red Sox and the Yankees (though it has played two extra games).

The Jays struggled to generate offense last year, finishing 11th in the league in runs, but they have scored at least five runs in 11 of their 17 games so far this year, a feat it took 26 games to accomplish in 2008. Four Toronto regulars -- Aaron Hill, Adam Lind, Scott Rolen and Lyle Overbay -- are hitting over .300, so the Jays might not be able to keep this pace up.
