Yankees Take Series from Tigers

The Good

Lots to go around this time. Sabathia, while not quite himself, managed 7 scoreless innings against the central division leading Tigers. A-Rod hit a solo home run in the seventh against Detroit ace Justin Verlander, while Melky had what was ultimately the winning run in the same inning on a two-out infield single. We also picked up a game on Boston, we are now only two back.

The Bad

I suppose I would've liked to see more runs, but can't really complain.

The Ugly

The Yankees have yet to trade and sign to a multi-year extension Toronto ace Roy Halladay. WTF?! I guess the Steinbrenner sons have nowheres near the commitment to winning their father had. I hate you Hal Steinbrenner! I hate you!

Dollah, Dollah Bills Ya'll

The Yankees continued their tradition of charitable giving when de facto team leader Alex "Does this haircut make me look like Jeter" Rodriguez hit a long bomb that convincingly cleared the right field fence.

Jorge Posada 11hr = $11.00

Alex Rodriguez 18hr = $18.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
