Yankees Master 2-1 Wins

The Good

Andy Pettitte showed that his trend of a strong 2nd half may continue with a 7.1 inning 1 run performance, which unfortunately did not amount to a win for him. Aceves would get that honor. Matsui got pied for the first time this season with a 9th inning walk off jack, and Hinske had a homerun of his own.

The Bad

The Yankees were pretty much dominated by Orioles pitcher David "Nolan Ryan" Hernandez. The Yankees amounted 4 hits all game, but luckily 2 of them were homeruns.

The Ugly

With an 0-3 night yesterday, Derek Jeter's average dropped to a paltry and unacceptable .318 on the season. Is it injury? Fatigue? He needs to figure it out soon.

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. Hinske, who only hits homeruns, and Matsui who hit a walk off both helped the cause last night.

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 13hr = $13.00
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 = $138.00

Won't it be nice if the Mets miraculously land Halladay?
Just imagine Johan and the Doc, baseball's best lefty and righty pitchers, stand side-by-side as teammates...

if the Mets pull another trade like that out of their ass I will be pissed. Any number of teams are in a position to offer more than the Mets. Omar already pulled a fast one on Minnesota, I will not tolerate him pulling another one.

BTW, I believe Matsui got pied in his face for the first time in his life.
