Well, June is officially over, folks, and I don't think anyone's more sad to see it go than the New York Yankees.
New York definitely found their stride this month, but even with a 20-7 record, the Yanks still had quite a roller-coaster June.
Losing CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte isn't good no matter how you slice it, and other pieces of this team are starting to quietly and quickly falter.
Looking at you, bullpen.
Still, the Yankees were able to make it out of June as the hottest team in baseball, but the season is just starting to heat up. Plus, in the impossibly difficult AL East, a five-game lead isn't even worth mentioning.
So, with July officially upon us, it's time for the Yankees to keep doing what they do best—that's find ways to win.
Still, it won't be easy, and things can go south in a hurry for the Bombers, unless, of course, they listen to me and follow these four easy steps.
