He's getting close to a mark the greatest closer of all time set in 1996

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.

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.
