Via Baseball Musings Day by Day Database – Yankees batters in April and May of this year:
The numbers don’t lie. If you want to know why the Yankees have had issues scoring lately, it’s because Abreu and Giambi went into the tank and teams stopped giving A-Rod anything that he could hit.
I’m not fooled by last night. The Yankees beat up on two pitchers who should be in Triple-A. Until they prove otherwise, the Yankees still have an issue on offense: They need to get Giambi and Abreu to bat like they’re expected to produce.
