Yanks Prove They Hate Rasner

The Good

The Yankees' offense came alive today and bailed Andy Pettitte out of his horrible performance. Damon was 6 for 6 with 4 RBI and the Yanks had 19 hits and scored 12 runs. Posada, in his second game back had 2 RBI including a game tying homerun in the ninth. Quite an impressive offensive performance on an oppressively hot day here in New York City.

The Bad

6.2 innings, 8 ER. Enough Said.

The Ugly

So let me get this straight, Rasner goes 8 innings 2 runs and we lose, Pettitte goes 6.2 innings and 10 runs and we win? That is absolutely insane. Considering the pitching performance nobody would've been surprised if we lost this game, sometimes a pitcher just doesn't get the job done. But if you get 8 innings and 2 runs out of your starter you should win and the contrast between these last two games is pretty ugly. Also ugly was the decision to leave Pettitte in during the seventh after he gave up the tying run. That's on Girardi.

The Court Imposed Community Service

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. A number of big homeruns today. Giambi hit one out in the fifth to put the team ahead by one. A-Rod had a 2 run shot in the 7th to put us within 2 after Pettitte had allowed 5 runs in the top of the inning. Posada then made up for Mariano's homerun by tying the game in the ninth with a homerun.

Melky Cabrera 6hr = $6.00
Alex Rodriguez 9hr = $9.00
Hideki Matsui 6 hr = $6.00
Bobby Abreu 7hr = $7.00
Jorge Posada 2hr = $2.00
Jason Giambi 13hr = $13.00
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 = $62.00
