If you want to download the minimum number of packages, the easiest 
answer is: use a proxy server.

export http_proxy=http://proxy.foo.com:8888
yum upgrade

Or, if you have some type of shared storage (NFS, perhaps), you can 
configure yum to keep its cache directory there.  Configure all of your 
systems to use the same cache directory and to keep cache.
