Yankees Destroy Orioles With Bare Hands

The Good

I would say the 13 run offense was a positive yesterday with Nady hitting two doubles, and Abreu hitting two homeruns. Chamberlain pitched a stellar 6 innings of 2 run ball, though 1 of those runs was unearned. Robertson and Giese combined for 3 innings of 1 run ball.

The Bad

A sloppy error by Cano cost the Yankees a run. Cano should think about what he did.

The Ugly

Edwar Ramirez showed how much movement his fastball has when he threw it over Kevin Millar's head prompting an immediate ejection. Millar believed there was intent and was quoted as saying “I was upset they threw him out of the game because he’s really good hitting. He’s a cute little fellow, he doesn’t throw that hard and he doesn’t have very good stuff. So it’s probably a good idea they threw him out, because it probably would’ve been in Monument Park.(Source)” That's one way to ensure Ramirez won't miss the next time.

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. Abreu showed a big heart when he hit two homeruns to help further children's health. Others should learn from his example.

Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Alex Rodriguez 23hr = $23.00
Hideki Matsui 7 hr = $7.00
Bobby Abreu 13hr = $13.00
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 = $104.00
