That Wasn't Pretty

The Good

If you're going to lose a game, you might as well lose it the way we did today. We were exceptionally good at losing todays game. Jeter went 3-3 with a walk, which puts him 3 shy of Gehrig's career hits total. Swisher also had a good game going 2-4 with 3 RBI's, hitting both a double and a homerun.

Josh Towers did decently in relief.

The Bad

Mitre's final line was 4.1 innings with 11 runs, 9 earned. You can't even spin that.

The Ugly

4 errors, lazy plays, and all around horrible play is what stands out with this game. That and Mitre's inability to get an out with the bases loaded.

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. Nick Swisher and Melky Cabrera hit homeruns to make it look like we could win, but the pitching gave it all back. At least the children still benefit.

Jorge Posada 20hr = $20.00
Hideki Matsui 23hr = $23.00
Derek Jeter 17hr = $17.00
Mark Teixeira 33hr = $33.00
Nick Swisher 24hr = $24.00
Robinson Cano 23hr = $23.00
Johnny Damon 24hr = $24.00
Melky Cabrera 12hr = $12.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 24hr = $24.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 7hr = $7.00
Jerry Hairston Jr. 2hr = $2.00
Total = $214.00
