Sabathia Can't Get it Done

The Good

Cano went 3-3 and Mastui went 2-3 hitting a homerun and driving in 3 runs.

The Bad

Jeter got thrown out trying to steal second, but the throw was beautiful, perfect even. It would have gotten any base stealer.

The Ugly

Sabathia went 5.2 innings and allowed 6 runs. Hardly a good effort. He was due for a melt down though, so I guess today was as good as any. That being said, the Yankees are still chasing the Sox and are 3 games back. A win yesterday would have put us 2 games back. Hopefully Burnett gets us back on track 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. Last night, Matsui showed what he could do for children's health even with two bad knees, with his 11th homerun of the season.

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 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 = $117.00

It was all Jack Nicholson's fault.
How could CC pitch a gem when all he could think about was getting his favorite actor's signature?
