It was a win, not the cleanest of wins, but at the end of the day it counts in the win column. Jeter, Cano, Teixeira, and Matsui all went yard.
After setting an errorless record not too long ago, the Yankees seem determined to set a new record for consecutive games with errors. Sloppy defense is never good.
I don't think there's a worse way to win a game. Two on two outs 9th inning, A-Rod pops up to the second baseman, and wait, no, the second baseman drops it! Two runs score, the Yankees win! It may have been an ugly win, but I take solace in the fact that its an even uglier loss for the Mets.
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. The Yankees hit 4 homeruns in last night's game, which is exactly what they didn't do against the Red Sox.
Jorge Posada 9hr = $9.00
Hideki Matsui 9hr = $9.00
Derek Jeter 9hr = $9.00
Mark Teixeira 20hr = $20.00
Nick Swisher 12hr = $12.00
Robinson Cano 10hr = $10.00
