Video: Yankees slump reaches epic proportions

The New York Yankees offensive woes continue to mount. When the club gets quality pitching, they score even less, and the results have dropped the Yankees into last place in the American League East.

Over the last 15 games (including Wednesday's 3-2 loss) the club has scored just 37 runs. The Yanks scored 35 runs in their first five games of the season. The worst part about the slump is that there always seems to be one player getting hits, but whoever that is, he is the only one doing so. Then, the following day he passes the torch. The Yanks need a group of hitters to get hot in order to squelch the slump.

Here is some video displaying the metrics within the offensive skid (prior to Wednesday's 3-2 loss) that has been the main culprit to an 8-12 start to the season. The Yankees need to turn it around fast, or else the next five months could be quite miserable.
