Complete Game Not Enough

The Good

Sabathia pitched a complete game allowing 4 runs with 7 strikeouts. Cano had a pair of hits to continue a hot streak.

The Bad

Verlander shut down the Yankees for 7 innings leaving the Yankees with no runs after striking out 9 and giving up 0 walks. Ordonez' homerun in the 6th buried the Yankees.

The Ugly

A 9th inning rally was doused by a groundout double play by Jorge Posada. He ran like he had Matsui's knees, Frank Thomas' feet, and Bengie Molina's legs. This the 4th straight loss for the Yankees, and the people are getting restless. How long before Girardi's head is called for?

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. The power outage in Yankee land continues.

Jorge Posada 3hr = $3.00
Hideki Matsui 2hr = $2.00
Derek Jeter 4hr = $4.00
Mark Teixeira 3hr = $3.00
Nick Swisher 4hr = $4.00
Robinson Cano 5hr = $5.00
Johnny Damon 3hr = $3.00
Melky Cabrera 4hr = $4.00
Total = $28.00

If this team is still a .500 team one month later.

You may be right, but I think they have to give him some time after A-Rod gets back. We've been playing without our best hitter.
