The word inconsistency often comes up when talking about the Yankees’ offense this season, and it has its reasons. Being three months into the season, the offense is still not clicking, and it is now starting to become worrisome.
It seems like when the Yankees have a good game of scoring at least five runs, it gives the team hope that this will kickstart a turnaround. However, they get their hopes shot down quickly, because the next game they will go back on their streak of scoring four runs or less. It is a very confusing situation, because they have many All-Star players in their lineup that could have this team run away with the AL East lead.
The worst part of it all, is important players on the team, like Mark Mark Teixeira” href=”http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/t/teixema01.shtml”>Teixeira, don’t even have an answer to this odd situation. They say that it is a matter of time until the lineup really gets going from top to bottom, but this has been said for the last three months.
“Individually, we’ve just got to figure out a way to get the job done,” Teixeira told Brendan Kuty of NJ.com “Everyone has to step up a little bit, and if everyone does a little bit better we’ll score more runs.”
If the Yankees want any shot of keeping up with the Orioles and Blue Jays in this tight division race, something has got to start coming together. Joe Girardi” href=”http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/g/girarjo01.shtml”>Joe Girardi believes it will.
“For me, I have faith in them that they’re going to get it done and I’ll continue to have faith in them,” Girardi told Kuty.
