Curse Those Rays!

The Good

Sabathia had another great start going 8 innings and allowing 2 runs. The Yankees could not get anything going against Shields, but Jeter and Cano had back-to-back doubles to bring the Yankees within a run.

The Bad

Despite a really good pitching effort by Sabathia, he lost the game 2-1. That's baseball though.

The Ugly

Approximately $19.5 million in bullpen money is on the DL.

Yesterday's game really could have gone either way. Up until the final Kyle Farnsworth fastball, I thought we had a chance. We split this series with the Rays and have the Athletics coming to town, followed by the Mariners and the Orioles. Here's hoping we gain some traction in this home stand.

Yankees Don't Allow Homeruns. Period.

The Yankee pitchers had not allowed a homerun in 8 straight games. Apparently, this applied to the Yankee hitters too. No homeruns yesterday.

Mark Teixeira 25hr = $50
Curtis Granderson 26hr = $52
Russell Martin 10hr = $20
Alex Rodriguez 13hr = $26
Jorge Posada 9hr = $18
Robinson Cano 16hr = $32
Andruw Jones 5hr = $10
Brett Gardner 4hr = $8
Nick Swisher 10hr = $20
Derek Jeter 3hr = $6
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $2
Eduardo Nunez 3hr = $6
Ramiro Pena 1hr = $2
Total = $252

I know Shields is a pretty good pitcher. However, our line-up should be able to score at least 3 runs. Is that too much to ask for?

Against Farnsworth 3 runs is an expectation.
