Yankees Awful As They Lose to Mets

The Good

The Bad

Wang went deep into the game with 7.2 innings, but he gave up 7 runs in the process. Ohlendorf got the last out of the 8th but not before giving up another 4 runs. The Yankees lost by 9 runs.

The Ugly

Delgado had a 3-run homerun taken away from him by the umpires, but the Yankees still managed to waste the opportunity and lose by a blowout. With 6 out of 9 Yankees going hitless its hard to get any momentum going. Its as we said last week after Mussina's win over the Rays, you'll lose more 2-run games than you'll win.

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. Hideki Matsui hit one last night for the cause:

Melky Cabrera 6hr = $6.00
Alex Rodriguez 4hr = $4.00
Hideki Matsui 6 hr = $6.00
Bobby Abreu 5hr = $5.00
Jorge Posada 1hr = $1.00
Jason Giambi 8hr = $8.00
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 2hr = $2.00
Total = $44.00

OK, not trying to make it a Cleveland blog here, but there's nothing to say. Heck, "The Good" was even left blank so check this:

The whole homerun foul/fair ball debate reminded me of this past football season when the Browns were playing the Ravens (I think) and it was overtime. Browns kicked a field goal - it bounced off the middle/bottom of the goal post and then went through. Initially, it was no good. All this controversy, not allowed to use instant replay for field goals, but during the challenge, the ref saw it up on the big screen used for the fans and the decision was reversed and called good - it was so obvious it went through! Browns won - yippee!!! But boy was there drama all week!

Anyway, in the offseason meetings, just recently one of the rule changes was that instant replays can now be used for field goals.

I know, I know, that story had nothing to do with last night's game other than the foul/fair thing, but that was a really crappy game, I figured you guys could think about football just for one second to cheer up - your Giants won the Superbowl!

The Good
Beckett gave up six earned runs, his ERA jumping from 4.21 to 4.67, but his teammates still managed to give him a WIN.
Hello, Yankees offence, anybody still alive?

Hank the Talking Horror has the ability to jinx whomever he praises. Wang hasn't won a game ever since the baby boss said something good about him...
