In 2011, New York Yankees pitchers led the league with a 118 ERA+.

Their 3.73 team ERA was surpassed by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (3.57), the Tampa Bay Rays (3.58) and the Oakland A's (3.71), but the Yankees had a better ERA+ because unlike ERA, ERA+ factors in a team's home park.

This season, the Yankees have a 105 ERA+ and a 4.11 ERA.
