Yanks Take Close One In Baltimore

The Good

A-Rod had two home runs in last night's game, accounting for all four Yankee RBI. Of course, only the second home run was clutch, because building leads early in the game is for p*$$!#$. Burnett gave us 7 innings of 3 run ball. That's pretty good.

The Bad

Too bad the Yankees aren't interested in getting their starters wins anymore. AJ should have another W, but instead he has to settle for a no decision and slight improvement in ERA. He'll never win the Cy Young now.

The Ugly

AJ Burnett was playing hurt yesterday, pitching with a conspicuously black eye. AJ refused to comment, saying that there were more important things going on. But it doesn't take a genius to figure out what happened. AJ plays on the Yankees with a catcher named Jorge Posada, who has a history of fighting pitchers who are underperforming. Clearly, Posada punched him in the face for good measure, just in case AJ was thinking of having another one of those great three inning outings where he buries the team before they even have a chance to finish stretching.

It's The A-Rod Show

A-Rod should hurt his calf every year. He's been doing quite well for himself since coming back from the DL. Two home runs last night and all Yankee RBI. Not bad.

Posada 18hr = $36
Granderson 18hr = $36
Cano 27hr = $54
Swisher 26hr = $52
Jeter 10hr = $20
Johnson 2hr = $4
Rodriguez 25hr = $50
Teixeira 30hr = $60
Thames 11hr = $22
Gardner 5hr = $10
Winn 1hr = $2
Miranda 3hr = $6
Curtis 1hr = $2
Kearns 2hr = $4
Nunez 1hr = $2
Total = $360

I keep dreaming that this marks the start of the big home run derby tear that ARod's been putting off all season.
Real good time for it.
Now for CC's 20th!

It would be pretty amazing if A-Rod somehow managed to get to 30 again this year.
