Yankees Take Division

The Good

Pettitte gave us 6 innings of 2 run ball, while a train of Bruney-Coke-Rivera gave us 3 scoreless innings in relief. The biggest effort was from Brian Bruney who threw 1.2 innings perfect innings.

The offense had some timely hits including a 2 run single from Matsui to take the lead, and solo homeruns from Melky, and Teixeira.

The Bad

How did we not score more against Paul Byrd?

The Ugly

In the 9th inning with Mariano on the mound, and one runner on, Mo induces a ground ball to Cano who ranges left, and goes to grab the ball, but before he has it in his glove he's already turning to throw to second for a double play. The ball bounces off his glove and as he scurries after it, all runners are safe. The play was to first, yet in his attempt to get a web gem, he messes it all up.

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. Melky Cabrera and Mark Teixeira both hit solo homeruns yesterday.

Jorge Posada 22hr = $22.00
Hideki Matsui 28hr = $28.00
Derek Jeter 17hr = $17.00
Mark Teixeira 38hr = $38.00
Nick Swisher 27hr = $27.00
Robinson Cano 24hr = $24.00
Johnny Damon 24hr = $24.00
Melky Cabrera 13hr = $13.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 28hr = $28.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 7hr = $7.00
Jerry Hairston Jr. 2hr = $2.00
Total = $233.00
