The Yanks are in first place in the American League East for the first time this season.
After winning six out of their last seven games, including a sweep of the Astros over the weekend, they are tied with the Tampa Bay Rays for the top spot of the division.
However, questions still loom about big-name players who were key for the Yankees winning it all last season.
The Yanks have plenty of overachievers that are keeping them atop, or near the top of the East.
Still, New York will be in serious trouble if their big fish don't step it up.
This 25-year-old was supposed to be the Yanks' go-to guy from the bullpen during the middle-to-late innings.
But, Robertson is averaging less than an inning per appearance and has given up 13 runs in just under 20 innings.
With the bullpen plagued with injuries, ongoing question marks and Joba Chamberlain's continued quasi-identity crisis, Robertson was expected to provide some consistency.
Robertson has yet to prove, however, that he can be effective out of the 'pen.
It's a good thing that the Yanks' starting five has been as good as it has ever been over the past decade.
Otherwise, Robertson's woes would be a much bigger issue in the Bronx.
The Yanks tried to put him in the rotation last year, but he struggled.
Then, they thought he'd be a sure anchor in the bullpen, but he hasn't been.
Joba has the size, strength, and mechanics to be a big-time pitcher, but his season has once again been plagued by inconsistencies.
Both he and Robertson are key for the Yankees doing damage in the post-season and bridging the gap between the starting pitcher and Mariano Rivera.
If they do not turn it around, look for the Yankees to try and trade for someone to beef up their bullpen before the trade deadline.
A-Rod has definitely had worse starts for the Bombers, but his run production this year isn't anywhere close to what the Yanks need from him.
As the clean-up hitter, Rodriguez is still in single digits for home runs and well behind the pace for an Alex-like RBI contribution.
It seemed as if Rodriguez had gotten the monkey off his back in New York after his very productive October and ensuing World Series ring.
But, Rodriguez's current performance has demonstrated that he is still susceptible to inconsistencies and struggles under the Big Apple's limelight.
The highest-paid pitcher in baseball currently has the fourth-highest ERA on his team's five-man rotation.
Coming off of an incredible, Cy Young-worthy season, Sabathia has not been consistent on the rubber.
In late May, Sabathia only went five innings, giving up five earned runs, and handing Johan Santana an easier win than was expected with these two starters on the mound.
The Yanks need him to have a second half of the season like he did last year, when he went 10-1, while posting a 2.25 ERA in August and September.
Andy Pettitte and Phil Hughes continue to out-pitch the ace.
Do I even have to interpret these numbers?
He's batting third for the New York Yankees and has numbers like this in June.
A lot of people thought Tex was just having early season blues, but his lack of production has persisted.
Remember, Tex had a big role last year in the Yanks becoming champs.
Luckily, for both Tex and A-Rod, a kid named Robinson Cano is having a pretty good season and helping carry their offensive production. He won't be able to do it all season though.
