Yankees Swept by Angels

The Good

Pettitte pitched 7 innings of 3 run ball putting an end to his recent bad games pitched streak. A-Rod and Damon both had two hit games.

The Bad

The Yankees got swept by the Angels. At some point Girardi needs to understand this one very important thing: Marte can't pitch 2 innings. He's stellar for 1, but every pitch he throws after that is wrought with danger. Also, Mariano can not pitch in non-save situations. Very odd, but accurate.

The Ugly

I know A-Rod was safe at third when he went for the steal, and I know he was unjustly called out, but with Nady batting and you're standing at second, you need to stay put. Nady has arguably been the best hitter on this team since the all-star break.

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. What better way to cap off this series with the Angels by not hitting any jacks for the children. For shame!

Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Alex Rodriguez 26hr = $26.00
Hideki Matsui 7 hr = $7.00
Bobby Abreu 15hr = $15.00
Jorge Posada 3hr = $3.00
Jason Giambi 23hr = $23.00
Johnny Damon 7hr = $7.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 10hr = $10.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Wilson Betemit 5hr = $5.00
Derek Jeter 7hr = $7.00
Shelley Duncan 1hr = $1.00
Xavier Nady 5hr = $5.00
Jose Molina 1 hr = $1.00
Ivan Rodriguez 1hr = $1.00
Richie Sexson 1hr = $1.00
Total = $121.00

I hereby announce "Heartbreaker" by Dionne Warwick is now the official song of the 2008 Yankees.

This team should switch to NL West.
They might get a chance for the playoff there. Everything will be fine if they remember to walk Manny.

... this is bad. i mean the angels are good, but they cannot spoil a good start by geise i mean that was a gem he pitched. but i mean we are only four out of the wild card, and we should try and pick up some games this series. its becoming frustrating to watch them play.

This is bad. Unless the Yankees can start putting together a winning streak, I don't know that they will take the wild card. The Red Sox aren't doing great, but they're winning alot more games than we are. So are the fricking Rays.

Fernando Alejandro said...

If not "Heartbreaker" than maybe a Madonna song. Maybe that "this used to be my playground" song would be appropriate for this team.

how about, "We used to dominate in our division but now we have a new manager and under performing starting pitchers and aren't playing very well," by Queen.

There must be an Emo song for this situation.
