Yankees Toppled by Amazin' Mets

The Good

6 runs will win you games on most days, but alas, it wasn't the 15 runs scored by the Mets. A-Rod had a good game going 3-4 with a homerun and 2 RBI.

The Bad

15 Runs spread across 4 pitchers: Giese, Ramirez, Ohlendorf, and Hawkins. Hawkins seems like a cool guy to hang out and get a beer with, but he's been awful in the bullpen. Ramirez and Ohlendorf are officially the most inconsistent pitchers we have. They're either lights out or pitch batting practice.

The Ugly

Carlos Delgado went 3-5 with 2 homeruns, 1 a grandslam, and 9 RBI's. In essence, Carlos "Shell of his former self" Delgado drove in more runs than the entire Yankees lineup.

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 a homerun for the cause. Hopefully he'll hit another to go towards a Yankee victory tonight.

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 5hr = $5.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Wilson Betemit 3hr = $3.00
Derek Jeter 4hr = $4.00
Shelley Duncan 1hr = $1.00
Total = $80.00

thats pretty bad when a rapidly aging delgado ravages your pitching staff. Must have been cheating on fastballs. It happens, I'm still not counting you guys out yet.

Of course, that was Delgado the DH, who was quite a hitter over his career in Toronto. Delgado the first baseman showed up in the nightcap.

Hawkins was worn out by Joe G in Pittsburgh.
