Sabathia Ace-Like, Martin Stealth-Like, Yankees Still Lose

The Good

7 innings of 3 run ball is typically considered good. It was good to see Martin steal a base and get his batting average ever close to .200.  Ibanez' triple was also pretty good.

The Bad

Not a single homerun was hit yesterday.  Not that homeruns have been winning us games lately, but at least when we hit homeruns, the children benefit.

The Ugly

The Yankees continue sliding. And not good sliding, like when you steal home, but bad sliding, like losing a 10 game lead in your division.

The Children Don't Benefit

No homeruns mean no money for the Children's Health Fund.  I guess little Timmy will have to wait another winter for that flu vaccine.

Raul Ibanez 15hr = $30 Nick Swisher 20hr = $40
Andruw Jones 13hr = $26
Derek Jeter 14hr = $28
Curtis Granderson 34hr = $68
Alex Rodriguez 15hr = $30
Robinson Cano 28hr = $56
Mark Teixeira 23hr = $46
Eric Chavez 13hr = $26
Russell Martin 14hr = $28
Jayson Nix 5hr = $10
Dewayne Wise 3hr = $6
Chris Stewart 1hr = $2
Ichiro Suzuki 3hr = $6
Casey McGehee 1hr = $2

Total 202 hr = $404

Now I'm starting to get on board with this 2nd Wildcard spot! Great idea!

Haha, I don't know that a first round knockout from the playoffs is any better than just missing it. At least if we miss it, they may rethink their approach to building this team.
