I Didn't See That Coming

The Good

AJ Burnett was masterful, weaving through the Indians lineup with a fastball/curve/changeup combination that kept them off balance. He struck out 8 in 7.2 innings of work allowing just 1 run!

The Bad

That 1 run was enough to lose him the game. The Yankee offense combined to score 0 runs behind one of Burnetts best outings of the season. That's bad.

The Ugly

After collecting a hit in three at-bats and moving within 6 hits from 3,000, Jeter suffered a calf strain knocking him out of the game, and likely ending the chances of him hitting 3,000 on this homestand. He may be heading to the DL. I can't say I saw that coming.

Burnett and Babies Suffer From Offensive Drought

Burnett wasn't the only one to take an L yesterday. So did the babies. That's what happens when the Yankees put their bats away.

Mark Teixeira 19hr = $38
Curtis Granderson 20hr = $40
Russell Martin 9hr = $18
Alex Rodriguez 13hr = $26
Jorge Posada 6hr = $12
Robinson Cano 12hr = $24
Andruw Jones 4hr = $8
Brett Gardner 3hr = $6
Nick Swisher 5hr = $10
Derek Jeter 2hr = $4
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $2
Eduardo Nunez 1hr = $2
Total = $190

The worst part for me was when the offense loaded the bases in the first with no outs and couldn't bring in a single run. Shameful for real.

Not just shameful, embarrasing.

I was hoping to see the 3,000 in this homestand.:(
