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!

I really would like everyone's opinion on this so then I can reply to them and all, so add the replies, but first let me touch base on my thoughts.
As for the hitting we can't hit the ball, and Girardi needs to do something about it other than benching a guy for two games, in tonight's game it took us five and a third innings to just get a hit, and these past ten games we made ten no-names look like Cy Young's. Girardi has to do something about this, or something has to be done about Girardi. Girardi and His Dealing With Batting: F with the best hitters on your team and yet you can't even hit a ball, this is the grade you get.

Excited Yankees fans traveled to Baltimore over the weekend to check out their hot prospect Phil Hughes, who tallied a win earlier in the season, although, they did not get to see what they craved, but Red Sox fans did! Hughes got rocked, all the way back to Triple-A.
