  1. Which offense ranks second behind the Yankees (119) in AL OPS+?
  2. Which offense ranks last in AL OPS+?
  3. Which is better according to OPS+ and ERA+, the Padres offense or their pitching?
  4. Which is better according to OPS+ and ERA+, the Rockies offense or their pitching?
  1. Twins at 107, followed by Angels at 105, Red Sox at 104, Rays at 102, and Blue Jays at 100.
  2. Surprisingly, it's not the Royals at 91 (tied with the White Sox), but the Mariners at 90.  We'll give the Seattle hitters a break, however, as UZR has them 116 runs better in the field than both the White Sox and Royals.
  3. Their hitting, and it's not even close.  Their OPS+ is 95 with a league average of 94 (explain that to me) while their ERA+ is 84 with a league average of 101.
  4. They're equally impressive, with their OPS+ at 100 with a league average of 94 and their ERA+ at 106.

Anything else you've noticed recently that would surprise us?  Could be both on the team level or pitcher level.
