Are the Yankees too old?
The Yankees are currently in a cold streak, and the Red Sox have taken the lead in the AL East, but they still are a very good team.
Derek Jeter has struggled this season, but he has picked his AVG up to .269 and is nearing a huge milestone: his 3,000th hit.
Curtis Granderson is having a great season, and is second in the league in HR with 20. Mark Teixeira is not far behind with 19 HR.
A big blow to the bullpen, Joba Chamberlain has to undergo Tommy John surgery. Joba was just starting to come around and pitch well.
No surprise here but CC Sabathia looks like he is ready to turn in another spectacular season, he is 7-4 with a 3.15 ERA.
Also, their surprise pitcher, Bartolo Colon, has been very good with a 5-3 record and a 3.10 ERA. However, he is heading to the DL.
Alex Rodriguez has only 13 HR and 40 RBI, but he IS A-Rod and always seems to end the season with solid stats.
Who knows, maybe he and Jeter have hit their ceilings, and age has been a recurring problem for the Yankees.
However, the Yankees always seem to find themselves in the hunt for a World Series come September, so look out for the Bronx Bombers.
