Yankees Take 2, Showalter Laments

The Good

Yankees hit 6 homeruns over the weekend, and CC Sabathia got his first win in an 8 inning 3-run pitching effort. Garcia pitched another 6 shutout innings, and Jeter went 4-6 with a double on Easter Sunday, breaking records in the process, and making some wonder if he'll manage to turn back the clock again. Oh yeah, and Boone Logan.

The Bad

In two consecutive outings, Mariano Rivera has blown a save. My world seems so much less secure these days. Like I have no footing. Why Mariano? Why would you do that?

The Ugly

Russell Martin hit two homeruns, he then proceeded to get hit. Baltimore's pitcher Josh Rupe said that it wasn't intentional, but Martin wasn't buying it. "When I went up to bat I saw Rupe shaking off a bunch of pitches. Wieters was finally like 'What do you want to throw!?'. Rupe was like 'What's the sign for hit this guy in the back?' And Wieters said 'There's no sign for that, just do it!' Next thing I know, I got plunked in the back. I think it was intentional."

So Much Money For The Babies

This weekend saw 6 pitches leave Camden Yard by way of Yankee bats, making this one of the more lucrative weekends for the Children's Health Fund, and of course, the babies. And all that despite a rain out on Friday. Much love to Russell Martin (x2), Jorge Posada, Alex Rodriguez, Brett Gardner and Curtis Granderson for their contributions.

Mark Teixeira 6hr = $12
Curtis Granderson 7hr = $14
Russell Martin 6hr = $12
Alex Rodriguez 5hr = $10
Jorge Posada 6hr = $12
Robinson Cano 4hr = $8
Andruw Jones 1hr = $2
Brett Gardner 1hr = $2
Total = $72

Curtis has 7 home runs already. He is doing so well this year.

He's being mentioned as one of the best centerfielders in the league, and so far, I have to agree.

I'm quite clearly the best center fielder in the league, so I adamantly disagree.

Showalter looked like a broken man sometimes. Having nine .225 hitters on your team will do that to you.
