This is Just Getting Old

The Good

Giambi and Abreu had a pair of hits, with Giambi knocking one out of the park. Giese and Robertson combined for 2 shutout innings.

The Bad

5 Yankees went hitless today including the ever underperforming C & C boys, and the Yankee captain Derek Jeter. Cabrera, Betemit and Gardner at the back of that lineup is a huge void. You pretty much don't have an inning if those three are up to bat. One of those innings had Cabrera popping up on the first pitch, then Betemit and Gardner striking out back-to-back. No good. Pettitte went 6 innings while giving up 4 runs. Not his sharpest outing.

The Ugly

Once again, Yankee fans were served a 3-run Marco Scutaro homerun against a Yankee great. Last year, it was the walk off against Mariano. Today, it was a 3 run bomb against Pettitte. Do the Yankees have an answer to this animal?

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. Giambi hit a homerun in the 9th to save the Yankees from the embarrassment of a Canadian shutout. At this point, the money raised for the children is the only joy I'm getting out of this season.

Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Alex Rodriguez 19hr = $19.00
Hideki Matsui 7 hr = $7.00
Bobby Abreu 10hr = $10.00
Jorge Posada 3hr = $3.00
Jason Giambi 19hr = $19.00
Johnny Damon 6hr = $6.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 6hr = $6.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Wilson Betemit 4hr = $4.00
Derek Jeter 5hr = $5.00
Shelley Duncan 1hr = $1.00
Total = $90.00

They should sign A.J. Burnett at the end of this season.
