Chien-Ming Wang goes seven innings and gives up three hits. He did exactly what we needed him to do, eat innings and give us a chance to win. There are a lot of guys who owe Wang a drink tonight. Cliff Lee also pitched a heluva game. I know TribeGirl will be pleased with that. Of course, as our own Fred Trigger has pointed out, the Indians cloned Gregg Maddux. Human cloning is illegal in America so the loss doesn't count against the Yanks tonight. Also, none of the Yankees were late for their dinner reservations since they were able to get out early.
This game was broadcast so a large number of people had this beamed into their home! Into their bedrooms! Where their wives sleep! And their children come and play with their toys!.

I think that more or less sums up my feelings about tonight's game.
Respect Jeter's Gangster is for the Children
(hence the self censorship)
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. As is evident from tonight's score there were no homeruns. Clearly, unlike this blog, the Yanks offense tonight was not for the children:
Melky Cabrera 6hr = $6.00
Alex Rodriguez 4hr = $4.00
Hideki Matsui 3 hr = $3.00
Bobby Abreu 4hr = $4.00
Jorge Posada 1hr = $1.00
Jason Giambi 5hr = $5.00
Johnny Damon 4hr = $4.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 3hr = $3.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Total = $32.00
