Strong Effort from Burnett Can't Save the Yankees

The Good

Burnett pitched 6 innings of 3 runs ball and struck out 12 in the process. Alfredo Aceves pitched a scoreless inning of relief. Teixeira went 2-5 with 2 RBI's.

The Bad

Relief was just plain awful. Coke came in the game and gave up 3 runs while only recording 2 outs. Robertson put in 1.1 innings of work allowing a homerun. That's 4 runs over 2 innings from our bullpen.

The Ugly

The offense went soft yesterday with the Yankees amassing a total of 6 hits and 2 runs. However, I suspect they'll be fine.

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. The Yankees are set to publically apologize to sick children everywhere.

Jorge Posada 17hr = $17.00
Hideki Matsui 23hr = $23.00
Derek Jeter 16hr = $16.00
Mark Teixeira 31hr = $31.00
Nick Swisher 21hr = $21.00
Robinson Cano 20hr = $20.00
Johnny Damon 22hr = $22.00
Melky Cabrera 11hr = $11.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 22hr = $22.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 5hr = $5.00
Jerry Hairston Jr. 2hr = $2.00
Total = $195.00
