Yankees Enter All-Star Break Sucking

The Good

Phil Hughes is really good in relief.

The Bad

We lost by one run , but with so many opportunities to score including multiple loaded bases, we should have won by 20 runs.

The Ugly

Nothing is uglier than being swept, especially by the Vlad Guerrero and Torii Hunter-less Angels. So far this season, we've learned that we can pound on teams like the Twins, but wimper before teams like the Angels and Red Sox. Now we're three games back entering the All-star break after being tied with Boston heading into this series. Time to step it up.

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 yesterday as the Yankees thought it would cheapen the Home Run Derby taking place today. So thoughtful.

Jorge Posada 11hr = $11.00
Hideki Matsui 14hr = $14.00
Derek Jeter 10hr = $10.00
Mark Teixeira 21hr = $21.00
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 17hr = $17.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 3hr = $3.00
Total = $132.00
