Crazy stats for Red Sox's dominant offense, surprisingly led by Jackie Bradley Jr.

At 21-13, the Red Sox have the same record through 34 games that the 2013 World Series champs did.  They're doing it with offense.  Lots of offense.  Boston just swept a three-game series from the A's by the scores of 14-7, 13-5 and 13-3.

The Sox have scored 196 total runs, 30 more than any other American League team (the Cubs lead the NL with 196 as well).  Boston's .293 team batting average is 15 points higher than the next best in MLB, the Pirates' .278.  It shows in the individual AL leaders as well:

Perhaps the best way to sum it up is to point out that Jackie Bradley Jr. (pictured), who's tied for eighth in the league in batting with David Ortiz and owns the second longest hitting streak in baseball this season (17 games), is Boston's No. 9 hitter.

This Vine doesn't relate to any of the above stats in particular, but it's generally relevant and I just think it's cool:
