The New York Yankees need some help on the offensive end, and they need it now. After another depressing performance in the batter's box during Game 2 of the ALCS, the Bombers find themselves down 0-2 with the prospect of facing Detroit Tigers ace, Justin Verlander.
Clearly there are some guys on this team who are hitting, and some who simply aren't. It's time for Manager Joe Girardi to take some steps to help fix this ailing offense.
Let's take a look at what the Yanks could do to bolster their lineup for Game 3 of the ALCS.
1. Ichiro Suzuki: LF
Ichiro has been hot in these playoffs and there's no reason to move him from the top of the order now.
Combined with his ability to handle the bat, speed and defensive prowess in the outfield, Suzuki is the best table-setter the Yanks have by far on this roster. Now all that's left is to find someone to hit behind him that can actually make contact.
2. Eduardo Nunez: DH
