Mitre Gets First Win, Bucky Gets Paid

The Good

The Yankees won their fifth game in a row, handing replacement part Sergio Mitre his first win as a Yankee. They have now taken the series from Baltimore and are in position to sweep them. Also, Mitre woke up with a hangover this morning.

The Bad

With the win, Mitre has proven he belongs, it's only a matter of time before he is the centerpiece of a Roy Halladay deal.

The Ugly

Bucky received his first paycheck from RJG yesterday. We all thought it would be a joyous occasion, but Bucky flipped when he opened the envelope. "A check?" he screamed. "I'm a bear, what the #*&% am I supposed to do with this?! I don't have a bank account! You think I can just walk into a bank and ask for a deposit?! The teller just screams! They scream at me, like I'm some freak! Pay me in salmon you dumb son of a #%&*@!" Bucky later apologized for his outburst. We're just glad Selena wasn't around. She doesn't tolerate that sort of behavior; it would've been ugly.

People Who Appreciate a Check

Cano decided to contribute to Johnny Damon's heralded charity yesterday, belting a 6 run homer for all the Yankee runs. It was quite a feat.

Jorge Posada 11hr = $11.00
Hideki Matsui 15hr = $15.00
Derek Jeter 10hr = $10.00
Mark Teixeira 23hr = $23.00
Nick Swisher 14hr = $14.00
Robinson Cano 14hr = $14.00
Johnny Damon 16hr = $16.00
Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 19hr = $19.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 4hr = $4.00
Total = $139.00

That may be beyond our technological capabilities, but I like the idea. I'll have to look into it.

i like salmon. and selena knows. she said she heard from bronny that you guys had a bear. and that well he got quiet upset over things. mitre is looking like a solid fifth starter. personally i thought girardi left him in too long but thats ok.

Raven King said...

Forget salmon.
Just give Bucky a ton of bamboo and tell him Selena loves panda.

Fernando Alejandro said...

Girardi has a history of leaving pitchers in too long, but as long as they win he gets a pass.

Raven, if only it were a panda that wandered into our office. We would be getting so much money since they're endangered. But no, we're stuck with the ever so common brown bear.

Did you ever consider dying that common brown bear like a panda?
