Yankees Take Another Win

The Good

The Yankee offense made contact for a second consecutive game.  Cano's 3-run homerun, and Alberto Gonzalez's 3 RBI night powered the Yankees to a win.  Ichiro also drove in a run, but it was unnecessary.  Bud Selig is investigating whether Ichiro's run was show boating.

Hughes' good side showed up last night, giving the Yankees 7 innings of one run ball.

The Bad

Claiborne and Warren had a hard time closing out the game prompting Mariano to come into the game and close it out on two pitches.  One of them left-handed.  I hope Claiborne and Warren learned a lesson about how to get that last out.

The Ugly

Kuroda will not make his next start on Friday due to hip flexor issues.  It looks like he'll just miss this one start, but here's hoping that this doesn't become a nagging issue like Pettitte's back.

Where Was This a Month Ago?

Cano has hit his third homerun in 2 games.  That's $2 extra for the kids at the Children's Health Fund.

Travis Hafner 12hr = $24
Vernon Wells 10hr = $20
Brett Gardner 7hr = $14
Kevin Youkilis 2hr = $4
Jayson Nix 2hr = $4
Robinson Cano 20hr = $40
Ichiro Suzuki 5hr = $10
Lyle Overbay 9hr = $18
Brennan Boesch 3hr = $6
Francisco Cervelli 3hr = $6
Chris Stewart 3hr = $6
Ben Francisco 1hr = $2
David Adams 2hr = $4
Curtis Granderson 1hr = $2

Mark Teixeira 3hr = $6
Zoilo Almonte 1hr = $2

Total 84 hrs = $168

If Boston just could lose a couple of games while we win another couple, then I might consider buying a couple of tickets to watch a game at the stadium.

It's still too early to worry about the standings. After the All-Star break we can start paying attention to it! Boston's been playing hot, but even they will come back down to earth.
