Rays Better Than Yankees

The Good

Hawkins-Veras-Ramirez pitched 3 scoreless innings with Hawkins recording 3 strikeouts. Maybe he should have started the game. Melky and Jeter had 2 hit games with an RBI a piece.

The Bad

Damon's 0-5 and Giambi's 0-4 certainly didn't help. Kennedy returned with more swagger after aceing triple A hitters, but it didn't help as he went 5 innings and gave up 5 runs.

The Ugly

How about this entire series. What game are the Yankees playing? The Yankee offense has been shut down for three consecutive days by three different Rays pitchers. Kazmir is easily the Rays best pitcher, but with this Yankee team you don't need much to hold them down. We don't score runs. We don't hit with runners on base. We're barely getting on base. We have Giambi, Matsui, and Abreu and have no extra base hits to show for it. NO EXTRA BASE HITS! This isn't the National League, we're not gonna win many games this way.

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. No homeruns for a second consecutive day:

Melky Cabrera 6hr = $6.00
Alex Rodriguez 4hr = $4.00
Hideki Matsui 5 hr = $5.00
Bobby Abreu 4hr = $4.00
Jorge Posada 1hr = $1.00
Jason Giambi 7hr = $7.00
Johnny Damon 5hr = $5.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 4hr = $4.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Wilson Betemit 1hr = $1.00
Derek Jeter 1hr = $1.00
Total = $40.00

WoW. I have nothing to say...you said it all. Except for Jeter, they Yankees I have are killing me in my fantasy baseball leagues, and Jeter is usually one of my weaker fantasy guys. That's all I got. This series was awful.

Rain delay is good for everybody.
Our quiet and shy baker can makes the best peanut butter cookies ever, and no Mets player has to worry about being body-slammed by a Krazy pitcher.

Krazy Kyle does like to body slam.
