Once Again... Shut It!

Once again I'm tired of Yankee haters saying "Oh... A twelve year old could hit one out to right field fence!!!"   Well here is why the Yankees stadium is no easier to play in then the rest.

The Yankees have the most powerful lineup in the league, we all knew that coming into the new season, with the landing of Mark Teixeira, and all the lineups they face are powerful.  They play in the AL East, the most powerful division in the MLB, without a doubt, so that means not only do you have the most powerful hitters in there day in and day out, but unless you have Cy Young himself, he'll give up runs!  That would happen at any stadium!  Not to mention the measurments aren't that short either!

Also, as for the Yankees rotation, its actually very good.  The guys they've got get the job done, but Joe Girardi knows they don't give up extra basehits, they give up home runs.  Another reason why you don't initiate the start to a good quarrell.

Lastly, if anyone can hit it out of Yankee Stadium, why aren't opponents going in there and dominating?  After all the Yankees have the second best record in the AL!
