Sheff and A-Rod Starting to Scuffle

Part of the reason the Junkees have been so bad lately is that their core guys are stinking it up. It's hard enough to win when you have a lineup with scrubs like Cano, Womack, Giambi, and Tino. But when A-Rod and Sheff struggle, you know you're in trouble. Over the past week, Sheff is 4 for 23, a .174 clip. A-Rod is in a 5 for 24 slump, good enough for .208.

Again, the Yanks' lack of depth glares out at you here. Even with Manny batting .230 for a while, Boston was able to keep winning ballgames- they had other guys to pick up the slack. The O's have 3 starters on the DL (Matos, Lopez, and Bigbie) and are still in first. The Yanks, aside from the blessing in disguise of Jaret Wright's injury (which basically gave them Wang), haven't had to face the adversity that the O's and even the Sox have (with Wells and Schilling doing DL stints). You wonder how bad things would be if the Yanks had players on the shelf like these other teams.

And with a bunch full of guys like Russ Johnson and Rey Sanchez, the Yanks have nobody to fill in for the struggling starters. Forget Clemens- these Yankees need some bats. Because if they can't hit against the Brewers and Royals, then forget about October.

You know, though, that if they did have players on the shelf, Snorre would be whining about how injuries have killed the Junkees. Either way you can't win.
