Yankees Don't Like Playing in Anaheim

The Good

A-Rod and Matsui both went yard, but the best thing was that Pettitte threw a quality 6 innings, allowing 3 runs and his arm felt fine.

The Bad

Bruney gave up a monster homerun in the 7th, and Albaladejo gave up another run in the 8th. These guys are easily pitching their way off the roster.

The Ugly

We scored 2 runs yesterday and that was it. I may not be a bona fide baseball guru, but something tells me you need more than 2 runs against the Angels. But their pitching dominated us. Six of our players went hitless last night.

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 and Matsui both went yard, as Matsui inches closer to 30 for the year, and though it wasn't enough to win the game, it was enough to bring a smile to a sick child's face. Thank you A-Rod and Matsui.

Jorge Posada 21hr = $21.00
Hideki Matsui 27hr = $27.00
Derek Jeter 17hr = $17.00
Mark Teixeira 37hr = $37.00
Nick Swisher 27hr = $27.00
Robinson Cano 23hr = $23.00
Johnny Damon 24hr = $24.00
Melky Cabrera 12hr = $12.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 26hr = $26.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 7hr = $7.00
Jerry Hairston Jr. 2hr = $2.00
Total = $228.00

I would so love to win a game in Anaheim. Like tonight, for instance. Is that so much to ask? Just one stupid game?

It might be. They have our number in that stadium, and Chad Gaudin isn't exactly the best pitcher we can hope to take the mound. But I still hold on to hope. Slim as it is.
