Pettitte Reaches July, Pitches Well

The Good

Pettitte pitched a strong game going 7 innings and allowing 2 runs. I'm hoping it continues because he was quite awful in June. A-Rod had a mamoth 2-run shot to put the Yanks ahead. Mariano pitched a scoreless inning for the 20th save of the season.

The Bad

The Baltimore Orioles couldn't hold onto a 4-run lead going into the 9th. Since the Yankees can't beat the Red Sox, we really need our AL East compatriots to beat them for us. Step your game up Baltimore.

The Ugly

There's no way that Michael Jackson is the biological father of those kids.

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. Three mighty homeruns yesterday from A-Rod, Melky and Damon. I'm pulling for Damon's first 30 homerun season. Melky hit his 8th of the season, which matches his career high. A-Rod's batting average is at .239 but has a .401 OBP. Perhaps the result of having Robinson "GIDP" Cano batting behind him.

Jorge Posada 10hr = $10.00
Hideki Matsui 10hr = $10.00
Derek Jeter 9hr = $9.00
Mark Teixeira 20hr = $20.00
Nick Swisher 14hr = $14.00
Robinson Cano 12hr = $12.00
Johnny Damon 15hr = $15.00
Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 12hr = $12.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Total = $116.00

Debbie Rowe said MJ wasn't the father of the kids but that they used a donor. Not sure why he didn't just adopt.

I'm okay with that, but when he did the interview way back when with that British reporter, I thought he said they were his biological children. That whole situation is wierd.

The Yankees have a chance to gain half a game tonight, and with Sabathia on the mound and A-Rod back, I really hope we get it done.
