SportsDash: Aging Yankees trending towards mediocrity

NBC on Yahoo Sports

The Yankees are 12 1/2 games behind the Red Sox in the AL East and they are, in all likelihood, going to miss out on the Wild Card. With Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte retiring, Derek Jeter and C.C. Sabathia done for the season, and Alex Rodriguez facing a season-long suspension, there could be some dark times on the horizon for the aging Bronx Bombers. The issue for New York down the stretch has been inconsistency in the starting rotation and with no real pitching prospects to speak of, the future looks bleak.
