Burnett Pitches Yankees to a Win

The Good

7 innings and 2 runs out of AJ Burnett was quite a good appearance. Coke-Hughes-Rivera closed the game out with 2 innings of scoreless baseball. A-Rod and Cano both hit homeruns.

The Bad

Nick Swisher went 0-4, and is now down to a .236 batting average.

The Ugly

Posada had to sit for a second consecutive game after taking a pitch of his thumb. He is back in the lineup today.

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. A-Rod and Cano both hit homerun. A-Rod has been excellent after getting some days off. Lets hope it continues.

Jorge Posada 10hr = $10.00
Hideki Matsui 11hr = $11.00
Derek Jeter 9hr = $9.00
Mark Teixeira 20hr = $20.00
Nick Swisher 14hr = $14.00
Robinson Cano 13hr = $13.00
Johnny Damon 15hr = $15.00
Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 13hr = $13.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Total = $119.00
