Yankees Take Series Against the Rays

The Good

The Yanks took a series against a division rival. Pettitte had a quality start, though it would still seem that his back is bothering him. He is old, after all. Hughes looked great pitching an inning of scoreless relief. It would seem that the Joba to the bullpen debate is finally over, since we've found our bridge to Mariano in another pitcher who should clearly be a starter.

The Bad

How long it took us to get this game review up. In fairness, I blame a certain someone who said he would do it when he got to the office. Looks like they finally installed site blocking software at the office.

The Ugly

Matsui running the bases is pretty ugly. You just want to say, "Stop, Matsui! Get on the Rascal, don't use your legs." Seriously, get the guy a Segway already. It's like watching your grandfather try to chase neighborhood kids when this guy is running.

Homers for Kids

The Yankees hit four home runs in yesterday's game, meaning children will receive four more dollars from us. The culprits? Teixeira, Damon, Jeter, Swisher, in that order.

Jorge Posada 8hr = $8.00
Hideki Matsui 8hr = $8.00
Derek Jeter 8hr = $8.00
Mark Teixeira 18hr = $18.00
Nick Swisher 12hr = $12.00
Robinson Cano 9hr = $9.00
Johnny Damon 12hr = $12.00
Melky Cabrera 6hr = $6.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 8hr = $8.00
Brett Gardner 2hr = $2.00
Total = $92.00

If you are interested in Johnny Damon's Homerun Club or the Children's Health Fund you can find links to both at the top right hand corner of our page.

How about that great game in Boston tonight? Could the Yankees have looked any more snake bitten?

It seems AJ is not complete without the Doc.
As to the series against the Rays, I think it's fair to say that both David Price and Matt Garza out pitched their opponents. The Rays bull pen handed the win to the Yankees.

I didn’t kill nobody, I didn’t rape nobody. That’s it.
It's definitely more powerful than "I was young. I was stupid. I was naïve".
