Yanks Snap Win Streak

The Good

Cashman put Ace on the roster, good move, because he's really come in handy. Mitre is settling in nicely into the 'automatic loss' role formerly occupied by Yankee greats such as Jaret Wright and Sydney Ponson.

The Bad

A less than perfect throw to Cano by Mitre led to an error by the second baseman which led to two unearned runs, the ultimate difference in the game. The throw was bad, but the error was Cano's, he should've caught it even if it pulled him off the bag. The throw wasn't that off.

The Ugly

After the game, Girardi said Mitre would make his next start. He then brought Mitre into his office to let him know that start would be in Scranton.

Charity Warms Our Hearts

Three home runs couldn't hold off the mighty Jays. Jeter, Hairston, and Cano each had one. It was Hairston's first as a Yankee. Only 650 or so to go before he catches Babe Ruth.

Jorge Posada 14hr = $14.00
Hideki Matsui 16hr = $16.00
Derek Jeter 13hr = $13.00
Mark Teixeira 29hr = $29.00
Nick Swisher 18hr = $18.00
Robinson Cano 17hr = $17.00
Johnny Damon 21hr = $21.00
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 = $171.00

The official scorer has changed the error from Cano to Mitre, now all 5 runs are earned I guess (I still think Cano should've caught it).

Hope you aren't joking about Scranton.

Me neither. The Question is, is it time to give Igawa another try?

I hadn't heard that from anywhere else. Thanks.

Sorry to say it, but I think my brother was joking. Mitre is still on the team, but if they seriously can't find someone better, than our farm system has gone barren.
