By Wallace Matthews

When a team has the best record in baseball, holds a two-game lead over its nearest divisional rival and is the defending world champions to boot, it almost seems silly to break it down to its components and critique them one-by-one.

But a baseball team is nothing if not the sum of its parts, and baseball journalism is nothing if not, well, silly at times. And while the Yankees may be showing the rest of the American League a thing or two, they still have to pass muster with ESPNNewYork.com. In that spirit, it is time for our midseason Yankees report card.
