Yankees Revert to Sucking

The Good

Dan Giese pitched 6.2 innings of 3 unearned run ball though he got the loss. Giambi and Jeter both had a pair of hits. Damon walked 3 times.

The Bad

The Yankee offense mustered no runs and only one extra base hit by A-Rod. They had opportunities to score, including a loaded bases situation in the second, but couldn't do anything with them. In short, they sucked.

The Ugly

Dan Giese's misthrow in the 7th led to 3 unearned runs. It didn't really matter since the Yankee offense didn't score any runs. Hard to win games when you don't score runs.

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. Today marked the third homerless game. For shame!

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

The Marvellous
a. Alex the Great didn't hurt himself catching a pop-up. Yes, we're thrilled that he did not stumble and fall on his handsome face.

b. Cano, the Big G and Giese did give "hard thrower" a whole new definition.
