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
