In this week's edition of Bombers' Beat, I take a look at whether the Yankees will have enough pitching to hang on in the AL East and into October. I respond to questions about Derek Jeter being an AL MVP candidate, how worried the Yankees should be about the Rays and what Curtis Granderson needs to find himself again.

UP NOW: Wallace Matthews, with his take on the state of the Yankees.

ON DECK: Wally will have you covered on the blog all day on this off day. Then he will be in Cleveland for the Yankees and Indians. CC Sabathia will make his return as the Yanks hold their breath with each pitch he throws.

QUESTION NO. 1: Is Jeter an AL MVP candidate?

QUESTION NO. 2: Are you getting concerned about the Yanks?
