"There’s just no one reason for the missing 100 runs. Many core Yankee hitters have been injured. The ones who have replaced them have been, collectively, a disaster. The ones who have not been injured have seen their performance decline, on balance, as a result of the deadened baseball, arguably more than other teams' players."
