The Yankees corner outfielders Monday were at least 38 years old. Captain Derek Jeter is 38 and battling a bone bruise in his right foot. Alex Rodriguez is 36.

When they lose, you wonder when some of these guys are going to hop in their Mercedes and drive off into retirement.

Then there are nights like Monday, when they can play the experience card, turn pitches from Liam Hendriks into mincemeat and look like a team that won't be a postseason pushover.
