New York Yankees: Grading Every Hitter in the Lineup After Week 1

It may be a little harsh to grade guys after only having a week's worth of stats, but these are the New York Yankees we're talking about.  They're used to the nitpicking and swift conclusions of the media.

The Yankees are 3-3 and fourth in the league in runs which means something's not right.  These are the New York Yankees after all, the spotlight's always brightest on them.  One of their problems has been the lineup where some of their big guns aren't performing as expected.

Some guys are playing out of their minds to keep the team up while others need to get better soon.  I don't expect Raul Ibanez and Nick Swisher to carry the team for the entire season.

The whole team needs to pull it together.  They can't always get swept by the Tampa Bay Rays and rely on lower-tier teams such as the Baltimore Orioles to give them wins.

So I'll be grading the hitters based on what they've done so far and what the expectations for them were coming out of spring training.
