Wang Gets Back To Old Form

The Good

Wang went 7.1 innings, only giving up one run. After four rough outings in a row Wang got back to his winning ways. If Wang starts pitching well consistently again it will play a big role in whether the Yanks get above .500. Hard to do when you only have two out of five pitchers going well (Moose and Rasner). Also good, during the sixth inning Edwar Ramirez asked Jose Veras for a piece of his chewing gum, which Veras quickly gave to him because the Yankees all understand that sharing means caring.

The Bad

Even after his sixth inning act of philanthropy, Veras walked two batters in the eighth. Knowing that his pitcher didn't have his best stuff, Posada used distractionary tactics to get the two out the team needed. He asked one hitter why there was so much evil in the world if God is truly loving. Obviously distracted by the implications of this theodical inquiry the hitter popped up.

The Ugly

Back in Florida Yankees pitcher (at least according to his contract) Carl Pava"No I won't pitch" received a mailing indicating he may have already won $100 Million. That would bring the money I earned sitting on my arse total to $142 Million.

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. Melky took another step on the path to breaking the Derek Jeter single season home run record, the only home run record in baseball without any asterisks. He now has 7 and leads all Dominicans under 25 playing for the NY Yankees in that category.

Melky Cabrera 7hr = $7.00
Alex Rodriguez 10hr = $10.00
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 = $66.00

It's hard to come up with a new one every day. I took a day off. Tomorrow should see something a little more witty.

Don't forget Joba is in the rotation! Without pitch counts holding him back, he won't lose a game.

it will be interesting to see Joba unleashed.
