Burnett Gets His Win

The Good

Burnett has been the biggest question mark in our rotation this season, because of how inconsistant he can be. Over his last few starts, he was very consistant, only he was consistantly awful. Yesterdays start, 6 innings and 3 runs with 8 strikeouts was a welcome change for him. $16.5 million for a 10-12 record and an above 5 ERA just won't do.

On the offense side, Teixeira continues to mash! He went 3-4 last night with 3 RBI's. The man can hit. It just takes him half a season to remember how.

Also good, another scoreless effort by Kerry Wood and Mariano Rivera.

The Bad

No homeruns for the babies. Or for the fans. Everyone loses.

The Ugly

Posada got tossed arguing balls and strikes, but mostly strikes because you typically don't argue about getting a ball.

No Homeruns for the Babies

No homeruns last night means no money for the babies. Its a sad but true reality.

Posada 16hr = $32
Granderson 15hr = $30
Cano 26hr = $52
Swisher 25hr = $50
Jeter 10hr = $20
Johnson 2hr = $4
Rodriguez 21hr = $42
Teixeira 30hr = $60
Thames 10hr = $20
Gardner 5hr = $10
Winn 1hr = $2
Miranda 3hr = $6
Curtis 1hr = $2
Kearns 2hr = $4
Nunez 1hr = $2
Total = $336
