The 2008 Yankees Did This All The Time

The Good

Another come from behind win, which included RBI's from Cano, Posada and Matsui in the 8th to put us ahead by one run. Chamberlain pitched 6 innings allowing 3 runs, and Aceves and Mariano shut things down there after including a 2 inning 4 strikeout effort from Aceves. Swisher hit a homerun.

The Bad

The Yankees looked like they could mount little against Garza and 4 out of the 9 starting players in the lineup went hitless. Its good that we win games like these.

The Ugly

Another throwing error for Posada, which gives him two in a very short period of time. His throwing game seems to be off.

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. Nickity Swish hit a homerun early to both tie the game, and contribute to the CHF.

Jorge Posada 8hr = $8.00
Hideki Matsui 8hr = $8.00
Derek Jeter 7hr = $7.00
Mark Teixeira 17hr = $17.00
Nick Swisher 11hr = $11.00
Robinson Cano 9hr = $9.00
Johnny Damon 11hr = $11.00
Melky Cabrera 6hr = $6.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 8hr = $8.00
Brett Gardner 2hr = $2.00
Total = $88.00

It doesn't help Posada that Joba doesn't hold runners on very well, and that Pettitte, who does hold runners well, has a very slow delivery to home plate.

I think it's great that you are a member of the Yankees Home Run Club!

Thanks so much for coming on board. Yankee fans are great. These small, yet significant acts of charity make this year's victory all that much sweeter.
