Yanks Take First Game From Red Sox

The Good

The Yankees needed to beat the Red Sox, and they put in a team effort. In fact, all twelve pitchers on the active roster got in the game just so the team could pull out a win. Colon even pitched well enough not to blow it completely but also make clear he should return to the bullpen so that Nova can stay in the rotation. What a guy!

The Bad

No Red Sox players were hit by us in this game. I'm pretty sure we still owe them from something that happened that one time with that thing.

The Ugly

After the game Rafael Soriano was asked how he felt pitching out of the seventh. "You know what I don't get?" responded Soriano. "Hipster fashion. I mean, I get that your girlfriend is going to dress you, but does she have to dress you in her clothing? It's like they got lazy. Girlfriends, as a whole, just got lazy and now I'm not allowed to wear pants that fit. That's bull$#!%."

The Greed

The Yankees have decided to keep all the money to themselves, giving nothing to the kids. For shame!

Mark Teixeira 31hr = $62
Curtis Granderson 28hr = $56
Russell Martin 12hr = $24
Alex Rodriguez 13hr = $26
Jorge Posada 9hr = $18
Robinson Cano 18hr = $36
Andruw Jones 6hr = $12
Brett Gardner 4hr = $8
Nick Swisher 14hr = $28
Derek Jeter 4hr = $8
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $2
Eduardo Nunez 3hr = $6
Ramiro Pena 1hr = $2
Eric Chavez 1hr = $2
Total = $290
