Well, At Least Swisher Showed Up

The Good

Swisher provided the Yankee offense yesterday going 3-5 with a homerun.

The Bad

Not that Burnett gave us much of a chance, but Aceves and Robertson combined for 3 innings and 5 runs in relief. Not very helpful. Also bad, the Yankee offense. They had 12 hits with only one run scored. Really?

The Ugly

It looks like Burnett and Posada really do have a communication issue. 9 runs over 5 innings is not a good performance and it seemed like they were having trouble getting on the same page. All around, an ugly game for the Yankees as they lost 14-1. Good thing it only counts as one loss.

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. One homerun from Nick the Swish gave the children hope, if nothing else.

Jorge Posada 15hr = $15.00
Hideki Matsui 21hr = $21.00
Derek Jeter 15hr = $15.00
Mark Teixeira 31hr = $31.00
Nick Swisher 21hr = $21.00
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
Jerry Hairston Jr. 1hr = $1.00
Total = $186.00

I was reading an article in Newsday today and it said that 18 of Swishers 21HR have come on the road. How insane is that, considering the bandbox the Yankees play in. I mean, its got Damon hitting like Jason Bay with that right field porch.

That's pretty crazy about Swisher. Its kind of surprising actually. And you're right about Damon. He's been quite the power threat in the new stadium.

Next, Girardi will be sitting Swisher at home and playing him on the road!
