The Yankees will have to work on not relying on the homer. Yes, home runs are great. But home runs alone do not win games. Look at Curtis Granderson... great home run hitter who placed second on the strike out list in 2012. Not exactly something to be proud of. Sure, we led the league in homers, but many of them were solo shots. We have to start getting runners on.
I’m looking at Kevin Long here. I like the guy well enough, but seriously, when every hitter on our team is having a problem, something has to be done. In 2012, it seemed like every hitter on the team was slumping for more than half of the season. It was cringe worthy. This problem needs to be resolved.
The division will be tough to win, but not impossible. The critics have counted the Yankees out many times only to be proved wrong. Our hitting is the biggest issue we have to face. If we can solve that issue, we should be solid.
