We’d call these 2013 Yankees the “Heart Attack Kids” except that typically the biggest news made last night came from the 38-year-old who pitched brilliantly and the 43-year-old who didn’t pitch at all.

Kids they are not. But goodness think of the cardiac arrest they must be causing throughout their universe of fans with their recent play.

“It turned into a really sticky situation” fill-in closer David Robertson said after securing the Yankees’ 2-1 victory over the Angels at Yankee Stadium. Every Yankees win turns into one of those. Which is why the safe bet is still that the Yankees living on the edge can’t stick around.

At 60-57 the Yankees lurk on the periphery of the playoff picture extreme long shots while not quite dead yet. They have won two straight games for the first time since a three-game run July 10-12. Even as the 38-year-old Hiroki Kuroda bolstered his darkhorse Cy Young Award candidacy tossing eight shutout innings the bigger story arguably came when 43-year-old Mariano Rivera didn’t come out for the ninth prompting fans to chant en masse “We want Mo!”
