Yankees Lose to Cleveland

The Good

Jason Giambi appears to be slowly but surely breaking out of his slump. He hit two homeruns today with 3 RBI's. Albaladejo's pitched 2 innings of scoreless relief.

The Bad

With Giambi being the exception, the offense was no good. The C&C boys went hitless, as did Jeter. Billy Traber walked 2 and gave up a hit and a run in one inning of work.

The Ugly

Pettitte was cruising for the first few innings but then hit a rough 5th. His final line was 5 innings and 4 earned runs, giving up 8 hits and 3 walks.

Respect Jeter's Gangster is for the Children

The "Respect Jeter's Gangster" blog joined Johnny Damon's homerun club, which raises money for the Children's Health Fund. We are pledged to donate $1.00 for every homerun the Yankees hit this season. We will keep a running tally of the homeruns hit and the money donated throughout the season. Tonight, Jason Giambi showed his true love for the children by stepping up and hitting 2 homeruns. That makes him the team leader in homeruns with 5, surpassing both A-Rod and the unlikely Melky Cabrera who are tied with 4:

Melky Cabrera 4hr = $4.00
Alex Rodriguez 4hr = $4.00
Hideki Matsui 3 hr = $3.00
Bobby Abreu 3hr = $3.00
Jorge Posada 1hr = $1.00
Jason Giambi 5hr = $5.00
Johnny Damon 3hr = $3.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 1hr = $1.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Total = $26.00

Where have you gone Robbie Cano???

Anybody know if A Rod fainted in the delivery room again?

Nope, he showed up 10 minutes after she was born.

Cano has fallen behind in the C&C homerun race. I know that's a great motivation for him, so I'm sure he'll break out soon enough.

michael kei said...

Boy he'd better. I see the former attorney general is taking over for him at 2B tonight. Maybe he'll have another HR of the pinch hit variety?

Fernando Alejandro said...

Yeah, I saw that. Honestly, he needs to be benched. Let him figure some things out. What an ugly start to the season he's had.
