Yankees Complete Sweep of A's

The Good

A spectacular pitching performance by Andy Pettitte where he went 8 innings and only gave up 1 run and recorded 9 strikeouts. Mariano saved the game with a shutout inning of his own. Cano and Giambi had 2 hit games with Giambi going yard to put the Yankees ahead.

The Bad

Betemit, Cabrera, Molina and Gardner went hitless yesterday. In fairness, Duchereserer is a good pitcher.

The Ugly

Duchscherer's name. I don't even want to try and pronounce it. I can't even spell it without having the A's depth chart open in front of me.

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. Despite the low scoring game, Giambi managed to barely put one out for children's health.

Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Alex Rodriguez 20hr = $20.00
Hideki Matsui 7 hr = $7.00
Bobby Abreu 10hr = $10.00
Jorge Posada 3hr = $3.00
Jason Giambi 20hr = $20.00
Johnny Damon 6hr = $6.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 7hr = $7.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Wilson Betemit 4hr = $4.00
Derek Jeter 5hr = $5.00
Shelley Duncan 1hr = $1.00
Total = $93.00

The Outstanding
Jose Molina, though not the fastest runner in the universe, has a incredibly strong arm and a durable kneecap.

Ken Singleton and David Cone pronounced "Duchscherer" differently. Maybe that's why Duchscherer was not traded to another team like Harden and Blanton. Who wants a pitcher nobody knows how to pronounce his name?
