If You Give Up 7 Runs to the Royals do you Really Win?

The Good

Nova recorded his 12th win of the season, which is good I suppose. Jeter continues to drive the ball with a double yesterday as part of a 2-6 game. Cano went 2-5 with a homerun and 4 RBI's. The Logan-Soriano-Robertson-Rivera train continues its success, pitching 3.2 innings of scoreless baseball. Posada came in as a pinch hitter, and drew a walk. You have to think that Posada can still help a team in some capacity somewhere.

The Bad

Nova gave up 7 runs in 5.2 innings of baseball and still got the win. This is a direct slap in the face to Burnett who had a commanding lead a few weeks back, but couldn't record the final out in the 5th to record the win. However, 7 runs to Kansas City is just not acceptable. He gets a pass though because he's been so good for us in the past.

The Ugly

The Yankees are in sole possession of first place over a team that's dominated them all season. Is that ugly for us or for the Red Sox? Maybe a little of both.

Bring the Ruckus!

Cano sure did. A solid piece of hitting after what looked like a 100-pitch at bat. That's 21 homeruns on the season for Cano, and $2 for the Children's Health Fund.

Mark Teixeira 32hr = $64
Curtis Granderson 33hr = $66
Russell Martin 12hr = $24
Alex Rodriguez 13hr = $26
Jorge Posada 10hr = $20
Robinson Cano 21hr = $42
Andruw Jones 6hr = $12
Brett Gardner 5hr = $10
Nick Swisher 14hr = $28
Derek Jeter 4hr = $8
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $2
Eduardo Nunez 4hr = $8
Ramiro Pena 1hr = $2
Eric Chavez 1hr = $2
Total = $314

If you give up 7 runs to the Royals, and you score at least 8 runs, yes, you really win. It doesn't matter whether the score is 1-0, 11-0 or 11-10: If it's in your favor, you win.

I'm not sure your math makes sense. Please explain in the form of a word problem.
