Sabathia's 7.2 innings of shutout ball certainly stand out, but equally impressive was Nick Swisher's 2-3 night where he hit a triple and a homerun, driving in 3 runs, while walking twice. Posada drove in the other 3 runs while going 2-5 with 2 doubles.
Veras ruined the teams shutout by allowing a run in his 1.1 innings of work. The bullpen is finished I say! Finished!
Cody Ransom went 0-4 bringing his season average to a healthy .056. I'm pretty sure Ramiro Pena can do that.
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. Nick Swisher did his part for children's health with his 2nd homerun of the season. Nady better start hitting some jacks of his own before he gets dropped on the children's health fund depth chart.
Jorge Posada 1hr = $1.00
Hideki Matsui 1hr = $1.00
Derek Jeter 1hr = $1.00
Mark Teixeira 1hr = $1.00
Nick Swisher 2hr = $2.00
Robinson Cano 1hr = $1.00
Total = $7.00
