The Yankees - on pace to win 106 games - are on vacation with the rest of baseball. But when they come back from the All-Star break, they will have to undergo some changes.

That's an amazing statement, but the reality is if the season ended today, the Yankees would be a wild card team because the Red Sox have been that much better.

After Ronald Acuna Jr. connected on a 1-2 slider, Yankees RHP David Robertson thought he had an out. Instead, he gave the lead back to the Braves in the top of the 11th inning. 

Yankees C Austin Romine signaled for the slider to be down to get the 20-year-old Acuna chasing. However, he lifted it out to right field, an area no pitcher wants to see a high fly ball go at Yankee Stadium. 

The infamous short porch did the trick.

Andy Martino, SNY.tv | Twitter | The Yankees and Red Sox played an early-season classic of a series this week, hinting at a thrilling summer to come in the American League East. It ended with a piece of intrigue to chew on: Was Aaron Boone wrong to send Dellin Betances out for a second inning of relief on Thursday night?

Betances has quietly become more reliable of late, but his initial assignment in this game served as a reminder of his reduced role. Boone summoned the onetime setup man in the seventh, with the Yanks trailing, 4-0. Betances pitched a perfect frame, then watched his offense erase the deficit by scoring four runs in the bottom of the frame.

There came the controversial moment...

The Yankees made the right move in giving Andrew Miller a long-term deal rather than David Robertson (King, June 9).

Miller, 30, signed a four-year contract worth $36 million this offseason with the Yankees. He is 17-for-17 in save opportunities with a 1.04 ERA in 25 games pitched this season. He has 43 strikeouts and has allowed only eight hits in 26 innings pitched.

Last season Robertson, 30, filled in the void left by all-time great Mariano Rivera in the closer role without a glitch. The Yankees chose to make a qualifying one-year offer to Robertson rather than work out a long term agreement. Robertson declined the Yankees offer and would eventually sign with the White Sox for four-years $46 million. He is 10-for-13 in save opportunities with a 2.19 ERA so far this season.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said a decision has "yet to be made" on whether the team will make a qualifying offer to reliever David Robertson (Hoch, Oct. 13).

Robertson had 39 saves in 44 chances and a 3.00 ERA as he succeeded Mariano Rivera as the Yankees closer. He is eligible for free agency.

"What happens as we move forward with him and the qualifying offer is yet to be determined, but we thank David and we're proud of what he's done here and how he's handled himself here," Cashman told reporter Bryan Hoch. "The final decision that has to be made here, first and foremost, is yet to be made."

In a piece for ESPN, Mark Simon uses WAR and a number of other factors while opining about what has to happen in order for the Yankees to reach 95 wins in 2014.Simon notes that some projections -- such as PECOTA -- aren't overly optimistic regarding the Yankees' 2014 win total, but says that they could get there if a variety of things go their way. Among them?Their big money free agent signings -- Masahiro Tanaka, Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann, and Carlos Beltran -- have to live up to expectations, players who had injury riddled seasons in 2013 need to return to form, CC Sabathia needs to turn back the clock and the bullpen arms have to combine to form a solid bridge to new closer David Robertson.The Yankees committed an enormous sum to free agents this winter, but the feeling is that they're still dealing with an unsettled infield situation and some question marks in the starting rotation.

David Robertson, who spent last season setting up for Marino Rivera's final turn as closer, is preparing to become Mo's replacement.Robertson is already in Tampa, and talked about what he's expecting as closer.?Throwing the eighth or ninth inning, you?ve still got to get three outs. You?ve got to be effective. You can?t give up a lead. I?m not going to try to overthink the whole situation,? he said (AP).In 70 games in 2013, Roberston had a 2.04 ERA and 1.040 WHIP over 66 1/3 innings. He struck out 77 and tallied three saves (Stats)."He?s been in some huge situations here,? Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said. ?He?s been around Mo. He?s in a good position to know what he has to do. He?s done everything that you could ask him to do to this point to become a closer. Now it?s just a matter of executing the pitches. Unless he gets overwhelmed by the situation, I don?t anticipate major problems.?
