Yankees Deliver 10 Runs the Old Fashion Way

The Good

A strong pitching performance by Sabathia who went 7 innings allowing just 1 run. Also, every Yankee in the starting lineup was invited to the hits party. Every one of them! Even Cano got a hit with runners in scoring position breaking a 0-22 stretch of futility.

The Bad

Everything was pretty good last night. I take nothing back.

The Ugly

The Yankees scored 10 runs but did not hit a single homerun. This effects the Children's Health Fund's Homerun Club as it means no donations will be made. 10 runs with no homeruns has to be some kind of post-steroid era anomaly.

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. No homeruns last night as explained in the ugly section of our game review, however, we never updated Jeter and Matsui's homeruns from this weekend so that adds two to the total. Way to look out for the children you two.

Jorge Posada 11hr = $11.00
Hideki Matsui 13hr = $13.00
Derek Jeter 10hr = $10.00
Mark Teixeira 20hr = $20.00
Nick Swisher 14hr = $14.00
Robinson Cano 13hr = $13.00
Johnny Damon 16hr = $16.00
Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 14hr = $14.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 1hr = $1.00
Total = $125.00

You can blame Gomez for the blatant disrespect for charity last night. He robbed Arod of a Grand Slam, as well as robbing the kids out of another dollar!

I know! Man, I was ticked! A-Rod took it better than I did. I guess its hard to complain after the blow out though.
