What to do about the offense?

New, comments

 

For the 50th time last night, the Yankees scored three runs or less, and for the 39th time, they scored two runs or less. They've accomplished those feats in 41% and 32% (respectively) of their total games.

They have a 15-35 record when scoring three or fewer runs, and a 10-29 record when scoring two or fewer runs.

Between 2006 and 2007, the Yanks tallied three or fewer runs 89 times (27%), for a 16-73 record, and two or fewer runs 67 times (21%), for a 10-57 record.

What this means is that our pitching has been considerably better this year, but our hitting has been considerably worse. Nothing earth-shattering in that statement.

So the question is: can anything be done to improve the offense this year? If not, what about next year?
