Yankees Continue Bullying the National League

The Good

Although it wasn't his best outing Rasner finally got a win. The Yankee offense came up big with 14 hits including 3-hit games for Damon, A-Rod, and Betemit. A-Rod hit his 4th consecutive homerun yesterday. The Yankees stole 4 bases on the Padres. Rivera recorded his 19th save of the season. Jeter made an awesome double play in the 9th to end the game where he caught a soft liner and then stepped on second to double up the unsuspecting runner.

The Bad

Giambi was not invited to the hits party this time as he went 0-4. It was A-Rod's party, and in case you are wondering, he would have cried if he wanted to.

The Ugly

Edwar Ramirez was lights out in the 6th and then got lit up in the 7th with back-to-back homeruns. Farnsworth, never one to be outdone, came in the 8th and gave up a solo shot of his own. 3 homeruns off our middle relief. Not pretty.

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. A-Rod hit his 4th consecutive homerun. Let's hope he hits 50 more.

Melky Cabrera 7hr = $7.00
Alex Rodriguez 14hr = $14.00
Hideki Matsui 7 hr = $7.00
Bobby Abreu 8hr = $8.00
Jorge Posada 3hr = $3.00
Jason Giambi 17hr = $17.00
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 4hr = $4.00
Shelley Duncan 1hr = $1.00
Total = $76.00
