Round 2 much better for Joba

The Good

With a cap of 75-80 pitches Joba managed to go 4.1 innings, giving up 3 runs. Not a dominant start but it was definitely an improvement and shows his potential. Giese, Veras and Mariano combined for 4.2 innings of scoreless relief and the Yanks tacked 6 runs on the board. Rivera only needed 7 pitches to get through the ninth, 6 of which were thrown for strikes.

The Bad

Johnny Damon was a measly 2 for 5 today. What the hell?

The Ugly

The Kansas City pitching staff walked Matsui, A-Rod, and Posada twice each on account of their cowardice. For shame!

The Warm Fuzzy Feeling

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. Two more homeruns today from Abreu and Giambi.

Melky Cabrera 6hr = $6.00
Alex Rodriguez 9hr = $9.00
Hideki Matsui 6 hr = $6.00
Bobby Abreu 8hr = $8.00
Jorge Posada 2hr = $2.00
Jason Giambi 14hr = $14.00
Johnny Damon 6hr = $6.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 4hr = $4.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Wilson Betemit 3hr = $3.00
Derek Jeter 3hr = $3.00
Shelley Duncan 1hr = $1.00
Total = $64.00
