Orioles Go on a Moose Hunt

The Good

The Yankee offense wasn't bad, as they scored 4 runs including a 3 run homer by Damon and a solo shot by Nady, but they still lost by 9 runs. Ramirez-Marte-Veras pitched a combined 2.2 innings with 4 strikeouts including two for the former Buc.

The Bad

Releif pitching did not help the cause as Robertson allowed 5 runs while only recording one out, and Farnsworth gave up a pair of runs in the inning he pitched.

The Ugly

Mussina took a beating of 5 innings and 6 earned runs allowing 2 homeruns in that time. The road to 20 wins is paved with bumpy starts, but he needs to recover quickly. He tends to fade in the second half, so here's hoping the offense can get him some wins the same way they got him some losses when he pitched well in the early half.

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. Johnny Damon jacked one to keep himself on pace for his first 30 homerun season, as did newest Yankee addition Xavier Nady.

Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Alex Rodriguez 21hr = $21.00
Hideki Matsui 7 hr = $7.00
Bobby Abreu 11hr = $11.00
Jorge Posada 3hr = $3.00
Jason Giambi 20hr = $20.00
Johnny Damon 7hr = $7.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 9hr = $9.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Wilson Betemit 4hr = $4.00
Derek Jeter 6hr = $6.00
Shelley Duncan 1hr = $1.00
Xavier Nady 1hr = $1.00
Total = $100.00
