Mathematically Possible

The Good

Kuroda put up a quality start, and Granderson hit a homerun.  Life appears to still flow out of the Yankees.  Also good, it's still mathematically possible for us to make the post season, and there's still an outside chance that the Yankees could catch on fire and play good baseball.  It's possible.

The Bad

The Yankees lost the rubber match against Toronto, leaving the Yankees 3.5 games out of the wild card.  At least we know Joba won't be back next year.

The Ugly

I bought tickets to Saturday's game in August thinking that the Yankees might be in contention, playing inspired baseball, and in easy reach of the wild card.  The Yankees still are in contention, and are not out of the wild card race, but they are not playing inspired baseball, as evidenced by a series loss to the last place team in our division.

A Little Hope

$2 from Granderson's homerun will go to support the children.

Travis Hafner 12hr = $24
Vernon Wells 11hr = $22
Brett Gardner 8hr = $16
Kevin Youkilis 2hr = $4
Jayson Nix 3hr = $6
Robinson Cano 27hr = $54
Ichiro Suzuki 7hr = $14
Lyle Overbay 14hr = $28
Brennan Boesch 3hr = $6
Francisco Cervelli 3hr = $6
Chris Stewart 4hr = $8
Ben Francisco 1hr = $2
David Adams 2hr = $4
Curtis Granderson 7hr = $14
Mark Teixeira 3hr = $6
Zoilo Almonte 1hr = $2
Derek Jeter 1hr = $2
Alfonso Soriano 15hr = $30
Austin Romine 1hr = $2
Eduardo Nunez 1hr = $2
Alex Rodriguez 6hr = $12
Mark Reynolds 4hr = $8
Brendan Ryan 1hr = $2

Total 135 hrs = $270

BP says the Yankees' playoff odds are at 1% and the Nationals have a better chance of making the playoffs. Time to focus on the Rivera and Pettitte Career Retrospectives.

They need to refilm those Yankeeographies. Do they still make those?
