Marky T Back in the Race

The Good

After falling behind Granderson in the race for Jose Bautista's homerun record this season, Mark Teixeira hit two homeruns to play quick catch up. Granderson got no hits, but it wouldn't matter seeing as the rest of the Yankees infield and bench found their power stroke. Cano, Nunez and Pena all hit homeruns of their own. The bullpen managed to hold an 8 run lead, which is very positive.

The Bad

The Yankees stole 5 bases last night. You're the New York Yankees! None of this small ball crap, just put pitches in the seats!

The Ugly

That last statement made no sense, but this entire post is written pre-coffee so I feel its pretty good considering.

5 Homeruns Heal the World

Because of the courageous deeds of Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano, Eduardo Nunez and Ramiro Pena, the Children's Health Fund will have ten more dollars to reach and heal the babies.

Mark Teixeira 21hr = $42
Curtis Granderson 21hr = $42
Russell Martin 9hr = $18
Alex Rodriguez 13hr = $26
Jorge Posada 6hr = $12
Robinson Cano 13hr = $26
Andruw Jones 4hr = $8
Brett Gardner 3hr = $6
Nick Swisher 6hr = $12
Derek Jeter 2hr = $4
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $2
Eduardo Nunez 2hr = $4
Ramiro Pena 1hr = $2
Total = $206

Ramiro Pena is on a track to hit 49 homers this season, now who's the monster!

At the rate Nunez and Pena are going, this makes Jose Reyes the 5th-best shortstop in New York -- behidn those 2, Jeter and A-Rod.

You don't like stolen bases? Stolen bases are one of the things that help us win, thus increases endorphins, which helps children grow, which helps children. Take whatever help you can get. DO IT FOR THE CHILDREN!

I oppose stealing! Thievery will not be accepted, even in New York!

And even with 49 homeruns Pena may still fall second to Bautista!
