Mets Rain Dance Doesn't Save Them

The Good

Excellent pitching performance by Andy Pettitte who had his start interrupted by a rain delay. He returned from the delay to pitch the 6th inning as he went 6 innings with 2 runs. Cano went 2-4 with an RBI, one of his hits was a slow ground ball up the third base line that just stopped without rolling foul. Veras-Farnsworth-Rivera closed out the game with 3 shutout innings. That's Rivera's 22nd save of the season.

The Bad

Jeter had his hitting streak end with an 0-4 performance. He'll have to start a new streak tomorrow.

The Ugly

Damon, Jeter, Giambi, Posada, and Cabrera combined for an 0-18 night. Cabrera has a rough Met's series thus far.

Respect Jeter's Gangster is for the Children

The "Respect Jeter's Gangster" blog joined Johnny Damon's home run 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 home runs hit and the money donated throughout the season. No homeruns as the Yankees decided to focus on winning close games. With that accomplished, they'll be back to hitting long balls tomorrow.

Melky Cabrera 7hr = $7.00
Alex Rodriguez 15hr = $15.00
Hideki Matsui 7 hr = $7.00
Bobby Abreu 10hr = $10.00
Jorge Posada 3hr = $3.00
Jason Giambi 17hr = $17.00
Johnny Damon 6hr = $6.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 6hr = $6.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Wilson Betemit 3hr = $3.00
Derek Jeter 4hr = $4.00
Shelley Duncan 1hr = $1.00
Total = $81.00

What a pity Kennedy's not here.

I think Kennedy is overrated, I cant believe they wouldnt include him for johan. He reminds me of the Royals Brian Bannister, in that, he pitches to contact, and has to rely on his defense to get outs. I'm surprised it rained in NY, the weather was nice up here, in RI.
