Fiammetta:If we’re talking about truly revelatory feats accomplished so far in Major League Baseball’s first five days of 2011, I guess the 16 home runs already belted in Yankee Stadium don’t count. Looking at individual statistics, there aren’t even many random surprise leaders – though Milwaukee’s Rickie Weeks does lead the National League with three homers! There is sunshine, Brewers fans.Rather, I’ll stick with the American League East. Traditionally one of baseball’s strong divisions, the AL East has begun the season with three teams above .500. Despite allowing 22 runs, the Yanks have scored 27, belting their way to a 3-1 record.That’s not the revelation.The surprise comes from the current bottom of the division – Tampa Bay and Boston. No need to hit the panic button quite yet – though the loss of Evan Longoria surely stings the Rays (no pun intended). But seeing two of the most potent teams in the division over the last few years combine for a 0-6 record has to raise some eyebrows.The Rays have surrendered only 12 runs so far, but they’ve scored just three. Three! Boston, meanwhile, has suffered by allowing 26 runs to a Texas squad that looks absolutely primed to take over the AL West.So while standing alone, neither squad going winless in its first three games is surprising – especially this early in the season. But together? That “Always Epic” slogan newly adopted by MLB might need some rapid revision.Erickson:They could have tiger blood – or should I say, lion blood – but in five short days the Kansas City Royals have shown they mean business.Beginning with a 4-2 loss to the Angels, life seemed to be going as normal for the Royals.There’s no denying not much has been expected of the Royals, especially after finishing last season with a .414 winning percentage and a .401 clip the year before. Kansas City has been a solid fixture at the cellar of the American League Central six times in the last seven seasons – the one year it wasn’t in last place, it was second-to-last.But when the Royals proceeded to win their next three games after Thursday, they launched themselves to the top of the AL Central and clearly stated they’re through with the old days.This may be a bold statement only five days into the season, but for a team whose name has become synonymous with mediocrity – possibly even less than that – the Royals have shocked the baseball world with their newfound success.Kansas City boasts some impressive young players (Alex Gordon, Billy Butler) that helped raise the spirits of Royals fans everywhere. So far, it appears the Royals mean business this season and are well on their way to showing any doubters they’re a new force in the AL Central.Winning.
