Without any dominant starting pitching lately, the Yankees will need the bats to boom down the stretch. Alex Rodriguez, who was missed more than Yankees fans thought with a broke hand, appears to have shaken off the rust. A-Rod is 8-for-26 with two doubles and two home run since coming back. That's certainly good news, but the Yankees will eventually need some strong starting pitching if they are going anywhere.
