The Good

Those gritty, scrappy Yankees clawed their way back from a 6-0 deficit to lose 7-6.  It's unclear whether Disney will make a movie about this come back story, but early reports aren't looking positive.

Also good, Betances continues to quietly dominate the middle innings.  He did so yesterday with 2 scoreless innings, bringing his season ERA down to 1.43. 

The Bad

How about losing 7-6 after clawing your way back from a 6-0 deficit?  No?  Not enough!?  Well did I mention that those 6 runs all came against our starting pitcher? 

The Ugly

Many people are blaming Jeter for some defensive mishaps that led to yesterday's loss.  Our response is that Jeter hit a homerun yesterday.  What else do you need?

Middle Infield Keeping Babies Healthy

Jeter and Roberts each had a homerun yesterday, marking the first time in either of those players lives that they've hit a homerun in the same game while playing for the same team.  Unimportant you say?  Well how about the $4 that just went to heal babies?  Is that unimportant too!?  Is it?!!?!
