It's interesting how fast things can change.
Roughly two weeks ago, the New York Yankees were riding high from beating their hated rivals the Boston Red Sox. They were on a roll and things seemed like they were going to come together for the team.
Now, the Yankees lost Mariano Rivera for the season, the offense depends on the 37-year-old Derek Jeter and the rotation is not as deep as it was supposed to be. Don't forget that they're third in their division. Even the Baltimore Orioles are ahead of them. Plus, the Yankees have yet to consistently win against teams above .500.
People were picking them to reach the World Series before the season started. Now people are wondering if they'll make the playoffs.
The Yankees need a blockbuster trade if they want to regain their status as World Series favorites. The current team is not going to cut it.
