Granderson Pop!

The Good

David Phelps pitched 5.2 innings allowing just 1 run against our rivals.  Granderson hit two homeruns to put the Yankees ahead, and Sir Derek Jeter went 2-5 with a run scored before being pulled with some sort of an injury.

The Bad

Derek Jeter was pulled out of the game after he came up limping after running to first on a double play.  However, Jeter insists that he's fine and that he'll play in today's game.  I guess that's what a contract year does to you.  It makes you play harder than you would otherwise.  What's that?  Its not a contract year!?  He just plays hard!?  I guess that's why we're called the Respect Jeter's Gangster blog.

The Ugly

Although the Yankees won, so did the Orioles, which keeps us in a two-way tie for first. 

Making Up For Lost Pop

Three homeruns in yesterdays game brought the Yankees back to their patented winning strategy, adding 1 to the win column and 6 to the CHF coffers.

Jeter living up to the DiMaggio mantra: "There might be someone out there who's never seen me play before. He deserves my best."

Seeing Jeter limp out that bloop single was great. I haven't seen a professional ballplayer show that much grit in a while.
