Yanks Continue To Dominate Minnesota, Their Greatest Rival

The Good

Another huge win over Minnesota. Huge. Huge I say. That makes six in a row against our most feared rival.

The Bad

AJ Burnett threw a lot of wild pitches, like 10 or something. I wasn't really counting since we were winning, but it was too many. AJ knew it and cried in the dugout when he came out in the seventh.

The Ugly

Phil Coke gave up a home run to the first batter he faced when he came in to relieve Burnett in the seventh. Only thing is, he meant to do it, because the Yankees were getting bored and decided to toy with Minnesota and make them think they could get back in it. But they couldn't because they suck.

The Yankees have hit far more home runs than you have this season, but they've hit none in the last two games. It would seem the Metrodome is where home runs go to die. That, and Minnesota's championship hopes. Zing!

Jorge Posada 11hr = $11.00
Hideki Matsui 13hr = $13.00

apparently Burnett felt a little stronger than usual (he may have an extra days rest or something) which made his breaking pitches harder to control. I suppose there are worse problems to have, but it made him rely on his fastball which he did more or less effectively. Winning games when you don't have your best stuff is important, and Burnett kept us in it.

Not hard to do with the biggest payroll in the game and A-Roid for that matter. How many billions have they spent since their last World Series win? Douche bag
