That One Stings A Little

The Good

Some would argue that scoring 6 runs without a single homerun is a good sign for the Yankees.

The Bad

We don't win if we don't hit homeruns.  The Yankees have proven that time and time again.  So 6 runs or not, we still took a loss, and now we're tied for first with the Baltimore Orioles.

The Ugly

The Baltimore Orioles are in the race for October.  Baltimore!  October!  We're talking about the Cal Ripken-less, Mike Mussina-less Baltimore Orioles.  And we're talking about October, the month where the best teams in baseball contend in post season baseball.  I feel like I'm in that show Quantum Leap.

Oh That We Would Remember the Children

I just happened to glance at the numbers, and it looks like Eric Chavez has 13 homeruns to A-Rod's 15.  The major difference is that Chavez makes $900,000 and A-Rod makes $29 million.  But really both are irrelevant because neither of them hit a homerun yesterday to benefit the kids, so the real number to focus on is 0, the number of children helped by the Yankees last night.

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 29hr = $58
Mark Teixeira 23hr = $46
Eric Chavez 13hr = $26
Russell Martin 15hr = $30
Jayson Nix 5hr = $10
Dewayne Wise 3hr = $6
Chris Stewart 1hr = $2
Ichiro Suzuki 3hr = $6
Casey McGehee 1hr = $2
Total 204 hr = $408

The Yankees are too selfish.
