Yankees Pick Up Pettitte

The Good

The bullpen, namely Robertson, Bruney, and Hughes, combined for 3 innings of scoreless hitless baseball, with 5 strikeouts. The Yankee bats came alive with Melky driving in a pair, and Robinson Cano going 3-4 with a homerun.

The Bad

Pettitte wasn't at his sharpest, 6 innings and 4 runs with 5 walks, but it was good enough for the win yesterday.

The Ugly

Toronto DH Randy Ruiz hit a ball that everyone thought was a homerun, everyone but Derek Jeter and Jerry Hairston Jr. who challenged that the ball hit off the concrete. Upon review, the homerun call was overturned and the Yankees made a mortal enemy.

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. Cano and Teixeira hit homeruns yesterday and helped get the Yankee offense back on track after a rough game on Friday.

Jorge Posada 20hr = $20.00
Hideki Matsui 23hr = $23.00
Derek Jeter 17hr = $17.00
Mark Teixeira 33hr = $33.00
Nick Swisher 23hr = $23.00
Robinson Cano 23hr = $23.00
Johnny Damon 24hr = $24.00
Melky Cabrera 11hr = $11.00
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 = $212.00
