Betances, Yanks trying to find spirit of '96

NEW YORK --- Dellin Betances was an 8-year-old in 1996, just becoming a Yankees fan. Growing up in New York, Betances became a Bleacher Creature and even was in the stands for David Wells' perfect game. So on Saturday, as he watched Joe Torre's No. 6 being retired, it was special for him. "I got goosebumps," said Betances, who recorded an important out in the seventh inning Saturday as the Yankees won their third straight, 5-3, over the White Sox.

McCarthy a Brand new pitcher

NEW YORK -- Through the first 87 games of this season, you could count the Yankees' bright spots on the fingers of one hand, and still have two fingers left over: Masahiro Tanaka. Dellin Betances. And most games, Brett Gardner. And in the 38 games since, you can add another: Brandon McCarthy. Unfortunately for the Yankees, McCarthy arrived here just as Tanaka was leaving for an extended absence -- he was acquired July 6 and Tanaka went down with an elbow injury two days later -- so it is not like the Yankees added a bright spot, they merely substituted one for another.

D-Rob takes the loss, but he is not to blame

NEW YORK -- Another bad loss against a bad team, but don't blame David Robertson. Yes, Robertson failed to fully replace Mariano Rivera for a night, but he has been a pretty close facsimile for much of the year. Robertson isn't the problem. He has proven he deserves top closer money and the Yankees should lock him up this offseason to team him with Dellin Betances for next three or four years, knowing there will be a few nights a season when Robertson doesn't have it and it ends up with a guy like Chris Carter sending a 3-0 pitch into the night for a ninth inning three-run blast in a...
