Yankees Take Series From Mets

The Good

The Yankees exploded for 15 runs on Sunday while Yankee pitching held the Mets scoreless. Burnett threw 7 shutout innings to recover from his horrible embarrasment of a start against Boston. Jeter went 4-4 with 2 RBI's and 2 runs scored.

The Bad

Saturday's game has further solidified my theory that Pettitte sucks this year. Not that he was all that sharp last year, but at least last year he had the whole PED excuse. He had a very sharp April, but has since been declining. I really do hope he pulls it together.

The Ugly

The whole K-Rod and Bruney thing was cute while it lasted, but it now appears to be over. Maybe next time Ryan Church will get scissor kicked by Nick Swisher.

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 went yard 3 times over the weekend with contributions from A-Rod, Matsui and Cano. Matsui's knees were really bothering him before the game but he mustered the strength to hit a homerun when he was reminded the good it did for children's health.

Jorge Posada 9hr = $9.00
Hideki Matsui 10hr = $10.00
Derek Jeter 9hr = $9.00
Mark Teixeira 20hr = $20.00
Nick Swisher 12hr = $12.00
Robinson Cano 11hr = $11.00
Johnny Damon 13hr = $13.00
Melky Cabrera 6hr = $6.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 9hr = $9.00
Brett Gardner 2hr = $2.00
Total = $102.00

Cano is back on track and that's a relief. Swisher would house Church for sure! I think the only guy I would worry about from the Mets is Delgado, but he's on the DL.
