Jeter Setting the Bar Too High for Future Shortstops

The Good

Jeter appears bent on setting the all-time hits by a shortstop record so high that no one will be able to reach it. He went 3-5 with a run scored and an RBI. Sabathia pitched 8 innings of 2 run ball.

The Bad

Though it didn't end up hurting the team, Teixeria came up with bases loaded, one out, and swung at the first pitch to hit into a double play. C'mon Marky T. That's little league.

The Ugly

A-Rod got hit in the elbow yesterday near where he got hit a few days back. Sabathia doesn't play that, so he threw behind Oakland catcher Kurt Suzuki. Didn't hit him mind you, just threw behind him. Anyways, Suzuki took the next pitch deep for a homerun. We really failed at making a statement there.

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, just hard doubles.

Jorge Posada 15hr = $15.00
Hideki Matsui 19hr = $19.00
Derek Jeter 15hr = $15.00
Mark Teixeira 30hr = $30.00
Nick Swisher 20hr = $20.00
Robinson Cano 18hr = $18.00
Johnny Damon 22hr = $22.00
Melky Cabrera 11hr = $11.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 21hr = $21.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 5hr = $5.00
