We know all too well how John Sterling talks about baseball being a marathon and not to judge it by a moment, a game or even a month. That certainly applies to Mark Teixeira, who once again has turned a dismal start into an outstanding season, though his batting average has varied sharply on a monthly basis. 

He has 28 homers, 91 RBIs and is hitting .262 after his 4-for-5 night in Toronto.

A month by month look at his numbers:

                 HR           RBIs             Average for month

April         2                 9                      .136

May          6              25                       .280

June        5              14                       .250  

July           8              26                      .344

August     7               17                     .277
