There's no getting around the fact this year's version of the New York Yankees will feature the worst offense in two decades. It's so pedestrian, Yankees fans that haven't grown up spoiled by non-stop winning have been caught looking back to a time when the Bronx Bombers were lucky to even compete for a division crown, let alone win one.
While the team has gotten old in a hurry, with long, big-money contracts coming back to haunt them now, it's injuries that have truly made this a Yankees team not to recognize. Older players can still do the job, but only if they can take the field every day. That's not the case for the Yankees, as they are set to open the regular season Monday afternoon against the Boston Red Sox.
