The Tigers have not been playing well the last three weeks, but the weakness of the AL Central allowed them to go on a seven game losing streak without sliding out of first place.

So, the Blue Jays and A’s have the elite line-ups, and clearly it shows where the Yankees are not.

The Yankees have around 60 less RBIs, 20 less homers and around 40 less walks, which is a severely significant difference.

These numbers are scary, and the Yankees have a ton of work to do if they plan to compete this season.

What do you think about the Yankees batting?
