Dustin Moseley is this Years Shawn Chacon

The Good

5 homeruns backed by a solid 6 inning 2 run effort out of Dustin Moseley ruled yesterdays game.

Remember Shawn Chacon a few years back? We picked him up from the scrap heap, he pitched well that season, then couldn't keep it going the next year? Moseley has had some really rough starts, but he's interesting because he'll give up 4 runs to Kansas City, and then shut down teams like the Blue Jays and Red Sox. Either way, if he can pitch like this against AL east teams, we will take it.

The Bad

Gaudin was not very effective in relief. 2 innings 3 runs, 4 children weep.

The Ugly

At some point the discussion is going to come up about our captain. He's in a contract year, and though he hit a homerun last night, he's batting .276 on the season. There's still more than a month of baseball left this season, and his gangster is well established, here's hoping that he turns back the clock, shatters the clock, burns the shattered pieces, and then signs a big contract.

4 Children Weep, but 5 Children Rejoice!

5 Yankees hit homeruns last night, making up for the powerless outing we saw the evening before. Granderson, Teixeira, Thames, Jeter, and Posada were the culprits.

Posada 16hr = $32
Granderson 14hr = $28
Cano 25hr = $50
Swisher 22hr = $44
Jeter 10hr = $20
Johnson 2hr = $4
Rodriguez 21hr = $42
Teixeira 28hr = $56
Thames 5hr = $10
Gardner 5hr = $10
Winn 1hr = $2
Miranda 3hr = $6
Curtis 1hr = $2
Kearns 2hr = $4
Total = $310

When I watch Jeter I feel like I'm stuck in a time loop. Every at bat has one of the same three outcomes (single, ground to short, strike out) and his stats always look the same. I'm of mixed feelings about him - I want him to play well and help the Yankees win another WS, but I don't want him to sign a huge contract that will burden the team for the next five years. It might be best for the team if he finishes the season as merely an ok player.

I hope Moseley pitches like Chacon, but doesn't punch his GM in the face like Chacon. Not that Bronny would ever let that happen.

Yeah, the thing with Jeter is that I won't consider him done until he's done. In 2008, he was having a rough season, all his numbers were down going into September, and people were saying he was done. Then he turned it on, and pulled his average up to .300 for the season, and then had a great year in 2009. I wonder if he will do that again this year.

The truth is, even if he finishes with average numbers, he's still going to get a huge contract.
