New York Yankees: 5 Ways the Bombers Can Turn Their Season Around

The New York Yankees have had a relatively strong season so far, spending most of 2011 in or around first place in the American League East.  Still, the road ahead will be a difficult one, with the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays rebounding tremendously from their slow starts.

More importantly, the team as it currently stands has some evident flaw—or, to be a little more positive, several areas in need of improvement. 

Here are a few ideas as to how to turn this season around—not in the sense of gaining ground (the Yankees currently sit atop the division), but to avoid the inconsistency that has plagued the team through the first seven weeks of the season. 

You will notice that none of these suggestions concern the starting pitching.  While one may argue that the rotation needs work, particularly at the back end, the results so far indicate that the starters have been serviceable.  It is fair to predict that Freddy Garcia and/or Bartolo Colon will not be mainstays in the Yankees rotation come August, but this article will focus on changes which appear more imminently helpful and necessary.
