Toronto Embarrasses Yankees

The Good

The cap on the underwater oil spill appears to still be holding.

The Bad

2 hits. That was all the Yankees were able to come up with last night as Toronto starter Ricky Romero pitched a complete game of dominating baseball.

The Ugly

Moseley pitched 7.1 innings, and I'm grateful that we didn't have to burn out the bullpen, especially with a Red Sox series coming up. But, his 5 runs, along with Wood and Mitre's additional 3 runs simply won't cut it. As Tampa takes the lead in the division, its time for the Yankees to hunker down and figure out why they didn't bring in a starting pitcher at the trade deadline.

Not All Was Lost

Despite a weak night at the plate, Mark Teixeira managed to hit a homerun for the children.

Posada 12hr = $24
Granderson 10hr = $20
Cano 21hr = $42
Swisher 22hr = $44
Jeter 9hr = $18
Johnson 2hr = $4
Rodriguez 15hr = $30
Teixeira 23hr = $46
Thames 3hr = $6
Gardner 5hr = $10
Winn 1hr = $2
Miranda 3hr = $6
Curtis 1hr = $1
Total = $254
