Yankees Decide to Stay Home Tonight

The Good

Pair of hits from Cano, Matsui, and Cabrera. 2 Scoreless innings from rookie reliever Mark Melancon.

The Bad

A sweep where the Yankees looked as listless and uninterested as they did in 2008. My open message to the Yankees is that you're all a disappointment.

The Ugly

Jacoby Ellsbury stole home against Pettitte and Posada pretty easily. Keep your head in the game fellas.

Just an awful way to close an awful series. Nothing went right in these three games, and now the Yankees have to move on and start winning some games. The Yankees better look alive when they see the Red Sox at Yankee stadium in May.

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. No homeruns as the Yankees decided to take a day off.

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
