Yankees Lose When They Should Have Won!

The Good

Sabathia wasn't good, but he lasted 8 innings. The Yankee offense came up with 7 runs against the Rays but failed to take the lead. Teixeira and A-Rod hit homeruns.

The Bad

Mariano Rivera blew the game in a major way. In a tied game he came in and gave up 4 runs. He looked miserable.

The Ugly

Cano is basically a hitting wasteland when it comes to high pressure situations. He had the opportunity to drive in some runs and he didn't come through. Its a common theme I've noticed throughout this season with him. He is awful in the clutch.

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. Teixeira and A-Rod each added a homerun to the cause.

Jorge Posada 8hr = $8.00
Hideki Matsui 8hr = $8.00
Derek Jeter 7hr = $7.00
Mark Teixeira 17hr = $17.00
Nick Swisher 10hr = $10.00
Robinson Cano 9hr = $9.00
Johnny Damon 10hr = $10.00
Melky Cabrera 5hr = $5.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 8hr = $8.00
Brett Gardner 2hr = $2.00
Total = $83.00

you appear to have taken a homerun away from both damon and melky and the total is off by four dollars.

Too much theology, not enough math?

Why don't you shut your face Solberg! You know I'm a history major.

Result of Official RJG Investigation: In our previous post, the home run total was correct, but we seem to have copy and pasted the wrong total (one from an earlier game) thus resulting in the count being off. It will soon be corrected.
