Yanks Take Series from Rangers Who Are No Longer Scared of Us

The Good

The offense was good today, keeping pace with a Rangers team that kept putting up runs against our big guy. Soriano was nasty today. You could tell from his first pitch that this wasn't going to go well for the rangers. Chavez with the go-ahead hit, not to mention some nice defense at third, also good. Let's not forget Cano, Martin, and Granderson all hit home runs.

The Bad

Walking the first batter you come in to face is never good. Joba did that with one out in the seventh and cost CC the win. I know the Yankees are all about the team, not personal achievements, but CC should have a win by now.

The Ugly

The weather has been awful in New York for this series. There was even lightning and thunder yesterday, sending the crowds scurrying to the concourse. There is a simple explanation for this: New Yorkers don't fear muggers, giant rats on the subway, or dirty bombs, they fear rain. If you're ever in the city when it starts raining, watch as the locals instinctively run for the nearest awning. It's bad enough that it happens at all, but now we've gone ahead and done it on NATIONAL television. We better beat up a lesser city quick so people think we're tough again.

The Souvenirs

The Yankees had three home runs last night, one each from Cano, Martin, and Granderson. That's three souvenirs for the fans and $6 for the kids.

Mark Teixeira 5hr = $10
Curtis Granderson 4hr = $8
Russell Martin 4hr = $8
Alex Rodriguez 4hr = $8
Jorge Posada 5hr = $10
Robinson Cano 4hr = $8
Andruw Jones 1hr = $2
Total = $54

Keeping Sabathia winless is part of an insidious plot to discourage him from opting out.

Now it makes sense.

I think you're right, Rich. Joba did take responsibility for costing CC the game last night, but he was bragging.
