Bullpen the key to Yankees' playoff run?

The New York Yankees enter Wednesday night's big matchup against Detroit's Justin Verlander six games behind Baltimore for the AL East lead and a mere game back in the Wild Card standings. As long as things continue to play out how they have all season, the Yankees will have as good a shot as any of the other Wild Card hopefuls for that coveted second playoff berth.

That is the big question, though; so far this season, the Yankees have come out very well in close games, and if that trend changes the Yanks could be in big trouble.
