Lifeless Yankees Lose Again

The Good

A-Rod recovered from his previous performance with 2 doubles and an RBI. Marte was particularly impressive pitching an inning with 2 strikeouts and both Edwar Ramirez and Chris Britton pitched a combined 2.1 innings of scoreless baseball.

The Bad

The Yankee offense scored 3 runs, and looked generally lifeless on the field. Pudge has not adjusted well to New York as he went 0-4 bringing him to a .192 average since coming to the Yankees.

The Ugly

Though the offense didn't help the pitching staff put it out of reach. Ponson gave up 4 runs in 4.2 innings, than Veras gave up 5, and Robertson gave up 2. Its hard to over come 11 runs. As Hank Steinbrenner put it, they sucked. This is the last regular season series that will be played with the Red Sox at Yankee stadium, and its a shame the Yankees are ruining this.

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 to help the Yankees narrow the deficit to 8 runs.

Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Alex Rodriguez 28hr = $28.00
Hideki Matsui 9 hr = $9.00
Bobby Abreu 15hr = $15.00
Jorge Posada 3hr = $3.00
Jason Giambi 26hr = $26.00
Johnny Damon 11hr = $11.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 12hr = $12.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Wilson Betemit 5hr = $5.00
