Yanks Real Early Spin

After 2.5% of the season has expired, they're 2-2.
Here's my spin on the early season, and why I think they look real good so far:
1. the pitchers, collectively, have had one bad inning. One. Unfortunately, it came in the first inning of the season, so it was overblown, but other than that, they've been excellent. Kuroda, Nova, Tanaka, and even Sabathia (minus his inning) impressed during their starts. Pineda today.
2. they've won and scored without hitting a single home run. they're doing it with oppo-hits and wheels. Yesterday, they stole 4 bags . They've got four or five guys who are legitimate threats on the paths.
3. the pen looks excellent.
That's all I got, except to say who cares if Texeira never plays another inning? I like Johnson, Anna, and Roberts and love Solarte. Beltran and McCann are solid, and the Ellsbury/Gardner thing looks a little scary. Ichiro is partying like it's 1999.
Is it weird that the last names of every one of our starters ends in an "A"? Sabathia, Kuroda, Nova, Tanaka, Pineda.
I'm guessing that's never happened before. I'm also guessing it doesn't matter at all either but it is a little odd. What does matter is they can send a legit guy to the hill every single game, even if Phelpa steps in.
See what I did there?
