Blue Jay Down!

The Good

Soriano continues his recent trend of single handedly beating teams.  Pettitte provided the defensive support of 7 shutout innings, while Soriano launched 2 homeruns and drove in 4 runs, most of which constitutes abuse.  Jeter had a pair of hits and an RBI of his own.

The Bad

Mark Reynolds hit a homerun, and I totally forgot about it when I was writing the Good section of this post.  I could hit the up arrow and correct this slight, but that would require more key strokes then I've alloted for today.

The Ugly

I also forgot that A-Rod hit a homerun, which should be included in the good section, but I'm going to put it in the ugly because this homerun puts him 9 homeruns shy of tying Willie Mays homerun record.  A milestone which will pay Alex an additional $6 million dollars on top of his already ridiculous contract.  It's the contract that keeps on giving.

4 Homeruns Vanquishes Blue Jays and Bird Flu

Because of the heroic efforts of the Yankees offense, bird flu has been eradicated in children.  Thank you Yankees.

Mays won't be a fun milestone for anyone, especially since it will trigger a torrent of articles about ARod being a bad person. The Yankees need to step up their illicit conspiracy to void ARod's contract.

Seriously, I wonder what it would take to void his contract. If only they thought to put a PED clause on those milestone incentives seeing as the marketability of those milestones was based on them being passed by a clean player.

No kidding. They were able to void Aaron Boone's contract because he got hurt playing basketball, but they couldn't get PED language into the biggest contract ever signed.
