Playing for the New York Yankees comes with high expectations. When those expectations aren't met, people start pointing fingers and passing out the blame.
While I'm not a fan of the blame game, with an offense as potent as the New York Yankees, someone has to be at fault.
Last week was a dark one in the New York Yankees clubhouse. The team couldn't seem to win or score a run. Their best hitters were practically no-shows at the plate.
They started to turn things around with their wins over the Oakland Athletics, but seemed to be forced back down by the Los Angeles Angels. The Yankees still haven't found their offensive rhythm and can't seem to win against good teams.
New York is a city where results are expected almost immediately. If not, well, that's why I'm ranking the players in the lineup based on who's most to blame. The ranking will look at the expectations for the players and what they've done so far.
Now let's see who's most to blame for the recent offensive shortage.
