The Yankees definitely need to improve their bench. Miguel Cairo is the backup for all four infielders and Kevin Thompson appears to be the backup for all of the outfielders, with Damon now DH-ing. In the past, the Yanks always had one or two more good players than could fit in the lineup.

Damon is such a waste of money it drives me insane. We need to dump him.

The lineup would function a lot better if it was selfless like the old teams--not too proud to bunt, sacrifice, run, steal to get runs across the plate. Now everyone wants to swing away every AB so he can negotiate a higher contract.
