Yanks Take First Game

The Good

The bullpen and offense were excellent, combining for another 'W'. Gardner and Granderson combined for pretty much all of our offense. After the game, the two insisted on being interviewed together and being referred to as the Double G Boyz. They were particularly insistent that 'Boyz' be spelled with a 'Z'. When members of the media refused, saying how stupid that was in the early 90s, let alone now, Jason Zillo closed the clubhouse to all media until Mike Lupica, the president of the BBWAA, New York chapter, apologized on behalf of all his colleagues.

The Bad

This offense has come roaring to life the past couple weeks. That's not bad for us, but it's bad for every other team. I don't know how, but the Yankees are organizationally different when the scent of October is in the air.

The Ugly

It's getting ugly out there for Derek Jeter, our beloved captain. We all respect his gangster; it's just that I miss being able to respect his hitting also. Joel Sherman thinks Jeter should be batting eighth or ninth. It's hard to ignore how off Jeter has been at the plate. The Yankees have barely even mustered a Major League best record as a result.

That's a Bit Odd

Despite the seven runs, the Yankees did not manage a single home run in yesterday's game. Tip your hat to the Toronto pitching staff who gave up hit after RBI hit but refused to be beaten by the long ball.

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

Good review! Changing the subject, I just bought a new doormat and I am wiping my shoes more often than I used too. You should all try it too. :)
