Posada Delivers, Stealing Melky's Catch Phrase

The Good

Another late inning rally by the Yankees results in another pathetic loss for the Angels. Posada's game winning single ties the all-time record for walk-off singles, in the bottom of the ninth, with the bases loaded and no outs, during a night game in which it rained within the last three days, and the starting pitcher was named Andy. Thanks to the boys at Elias Sports Bureau for that one.

The Bad

Swisher was hit on the elbow in the first inning and is now day to day. Derek Jeter has vowed revenge.

The Ugly

When Posada returned to the clubhouse, he was running around yelling, "The Posada man delivers. The Yankees Win! Theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Yankees win!" Melky was upset because 'the Melk man delivers' is his catch phrase. Melky couldn't do anything about it though because Posada's crazy. If he said something, he wouldn't be the first teammate Posada punched out in the clubhouse. So to make himself feel better he told Brett Gardner what a great player Gardner is.

RJG Needs a Bailout

Before the season began, RJG committed to donating one dollar to Johnny Damon's home run club. That was before we knew about the jet stream in right field. We currently owe Johnny Damon $3,000 dollars, and are seriously in the red. Despite that, and our repeated pleas, these bastards keep hitting home runs. Posada hit one in the first. We would say something, but it wouldn't be the first time he punched out a member of the media in the Yankees clubhouse.

Jorge Posada 4hr = $4.00
Hideki Matsui 2hr = $2.00
Derek Jeter 4hr = $4.00
Mark Teixeira 3hr = $3.00
Nick Swisher 7hr = $7.00
Robinson Cano 5hr = $5.00
Johnny Damon 4hr = $4.00
Melky Cabrera 4hr = $4.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Total = $34.00

Don Jeter did vow revenge but alas Mike Napoli drilled him on the helmet and spoiled his plan.

Actually, it was all part of Jeter's plan. Napoli owed him a favor and Jeter had him throw one at his helmet so he could head it like a soccer ball and take the short stop out of the game.
