Armed with the Steinbrenner family's seemingly limitless cheque book, the Yankees have always had the luxury of fielding tremendously talented lineups.
This year is no different, with several Hall of Fame-caliber players in the batting lineup for the Yanks.
However, despite all the talent, it seems as if the team as a whole is suffering an extended slump.
The starting pitching was meant to be the Achilles heel of the team, not the batting lineup. With power and speed in abundance, the Yankee offense was expected to crush opposing pitchers and carry the rotation.
So far this season, it has been the other way around.
In short, changes are needed—starting with the batting order.
