Burnett's Powers Stolen By Evil Enchantress

The Good

I was delightfully surprised by our bullpen. Mitre-Robertson-Logan-Chamberlain combined for 4.1 scoreless innings with 5 strikeouts. Also good, Swisher hit two homeruns.

The Bad

An 0-5 night has pretty much solidified the fact that 600 is in A-Rod's head.

The Ugly

This ones easy. AJ Burnett was back to his crazy antics, giving up 8 runs in 4.2 innings. He was a little wild early in the game, but he didn't really get hurt until the 5th when an evil enchantress, previously scorned by Burnett, cast a spell on him to steal his abilities. The result was 7 runs attributed to Burnett in that one inning. "I will find this evil enchantress." Explained Burnett after the game. "And when I do, I will twice scorn her, and steal my powers back!"

The Babies Get Their Medicine

The Yankees hit 3 homeruns last night, 2 from Swisher and 1 from Teixeira, all of which provide extra medicine for the babies.

Posada 12hr = $24
Granderson 10hr = $20
Cano 21hr = $42
Swisher 22hr = $44
Jeter 9hr = $18
Johnson 2hr = $4
Rodriguez 15hr = $30
Teixeira 22hr = $44
Thames 3hr = $6
Gardner 5hr = $10
Winn 1hr = $2
Miranda 3hr = $6
Curtis 1hr = $1
Total = $252

has anyone else noticed the stains on Joba's hat? Someone needs to take him aside and give him the sage advise from Crash Davis, "Think classy, you'll be classy. If you win 20 in the show, you can let the fungus grow back and the press'll think you're colorful. Until you win 20 in the show, however, it means you are a slob."

Steve, John Wetteland never won 20 in the show, but he had the same kind of hat, and he saved all 4 Yankee wins in the 1996 World Series. As Crash would say, "Don't think. It can only hurt the ballclub."

Hey, you started it, Meat. Besides, in real life, Susan Sarandon is a Met fan. And I don't care how good she still looks at her age, that's not attractive.

In related news, Posada needs to wash his helmet. It makes me uncomfortable. Maybe it's making one or more of Jeter, ARod, Burnett, Granderson, or Teixeira uncomfortable too. (Swisher and Cano clearly like it.)

Joba's fall from grace has been an interesting development this season, and by interesting I mean obnoxious.
