Vazquez threw 7 innings of 2 run ball, proving that he can beat most any team that's in a rebuilding mode. Granderson hit another homerun to give the Yankees the lead, while Swisher hit a homerun to put us on the board. Granderson appears primed to make up for lost time.
Even the bullpen fulfilled its duty of not blowing a one run lead with Dave Robertson and Boone Logan combining to pitch a perfect 8th while getting the ball to Mariano Rivera.
Poor A-Rod went 0-4, not hitting his 600th homerun and getting the homerun milestone monkey off his back.
When Granderson hit the homerun to put the Yankees ahead, one of the fans in the stands stood up and yelled "(Bleep) you Cleveland!" When that individual was spotted on the camera's it was one Lebron James. James then proceeded to give dual middle fingers to the fans in the crowd as he trampled on their dreams and hopes on his way out of the stadium. It all seemed unnecessary.
Respect Jeter's Gangster is for the Children
The RJG is donating $2 for every homerun hit this season to the Children's Health Fund.
In the land of singles, the homerun hitter is king. Last night, Nick Swisher and Curtis Granderson hit homeruns to help the Yankees pass the Indians. When asked if this was confirmation that he was starting to break out Granderson responded with the famous words of the Neville brothers "I don't know much. But I know that I love you."
We didn't know what to do with that.
