CC Finishes the Sweep

The Good

CC is now undefeatable. It's like he ate one of those magic stars in Mario Bros., or he broke open the starry box in Sonic, he just won't go down. He can run straight through the competition without even blinking.

The Bad

We only scored five runs. Sure, that was good enough for the win, but as a New York fan I have to nitpick about something.

The Ugly

After Granderson hit his second home run in consecutive innings, he declared that he was the greatest hitter in the world. Then it was pointed out to him that his average was lower than Derek Jeter's. Even Granderson had to acknowledge that was sad.

A Grand Ol' Time

Wow. Granderson is really getting hot right now. Whatever they're paying Kevin Long, they should double it, then triple it. Amazing. Two home runs from Granderson plus one from Posada, who's also been on a bit of a tear. The kids can't complain about that.

Posada 17hr = $34
Granderson 17hr = $34
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 = $342

Also Good: this game did not feature Posada screaming at the umpire and using his bat to mark the other batter's box, like in baseball comedies, before getting ejected and leaving us with only our third-string catcher.

Granderson only played because Swisher left the game with stiffness in his knee. He then conveniently hit two home runs and went mad with power. This sounds highly suspicious to me. Does RJG suspect foul play?

I think the whole bullpen found some Mario stars.
