Heading into the final week of May, the Yankees have seemed to rebound from a week-long slump.

They've won five games in a row and have won their last two series against the Kansas City Royals while also sweeping the Oakland A's.

Standing in their way of a division lead are the Baltimore Orioles and Tampa Bay Rays, who are both tied for first place.

Then there are the Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox, who are just three games behind the Bombers in the AL East.

The one thing that any team needs to have if they want to make a run at the playoffs is good, consistent pitching.

Teams can get by for a little while with good offense, but if they don't have good pitching when they are in October, they will not survive.

But what about the pitching staff in 2012? Can this current staff get to the postseason as is?

Lets find out as we analyze the current Yankees rotation.
