A Weekend of Baseball Abbreviated

The Good

Jeter passed Gehrig!

The Bad

Pettitte and Burnett's pitching performances.

The Ugly

Two dropped games to the Baltimore Orioles.

The Apology

We apologize for our absence this weekend as things got a little busy, but we are excited to see Sabathia take on the Orioles to try and avoid a sweep. We're also happy that Jeter passed Gehrig on the all-time Yankees hits list. We all knew he would do it, but it was nice to actually see it. Here's to another 20 years of Derek Jeter at shortstop.

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. A-Rod hit one this weekend, but the dominating Orioles pitching staff has kept the Yankees in yard for the most part.

Jorge Posada 21hr = $21.00
Hideki Matsui 23hr = $23.00
Derek Jeter 17hr = $17.00
Mark Teixeira 35hr = $35.00
Nick Swisher 26hr = $26.00
Robinson Cano 23hr = $23.00
Johnny Damon 24hr = $24.00
Melky Cabrera 12hr = $12.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 25hr = $25.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 7hr = $7.00
Jerry Hairston Jr. 2hr = $2.00
Total = $220.00
