Is the Yankees bench weak?

The Yankees lost to the Red Sox... it's a tough one especially coming from a season opener. But that's only one game. They still have 161 games to go. Anyway not only did the Yankees starting pitcher played poorly but also the Red Sox ace Josh Beckett.
Next game we will see AJ Burnett and the avenging Yankee line-up. Yankees' offense looks great. Brett Gardner showed flashes of brilliance stealing home and hitting. Newcomer Curtis Granderson homered. They are still a team to beat.

Things seems okay. But I'm a little worried of the Yankees bench. There's nobody that can provide instant offense. New acquisition Randy Winn and Marcus Thames are a nice pick-up but will they provide some spark off the bench?
Last year the Yankees have Melky Cabrera, Xavier Nady and defensive catcher Jose Molina of the bench. It's a little bit slim this year.

Let's just hope that the Yankees will encounter minimal injuries in the future. They can't afford to lose guys like Nick Johnson and Jorge Posada or things would look bleak.
That is why the Yankees must be ready with their minor league players if something happens.

Players like Jesus Montero, Austine Romine, Juan Miranda could help out if necessary. This homegrown talents needs just a little tuning before they enter the majors.

So far the Yankees looks great even if they lost to the Red Sox. Let's just cross our fingers guys because we need a lot of regular season win to get to championship number 28.
