Twins Suck

The Good

The Yankees once again won a game in extra innings with a walk off hit. This time, it was a walk off double by Bobby Abreu, which scored the captain, Derek Jeter from first. Derek Jeter scored both of the Yankee runs. Ponson pitched 6 innings of 1 run ball, which was good enough for a win, however, he got a no decision since the Yankees didn't score again until the 10th. Veras-Farnsworth-Rivera shut out the Rays through 4 innings, which included a 2-inning 4 strikeout performance by Mariano Rivera.

The Bad

6 innings of 1 run ball by Edwin Jackson? Really?

The Ugly

The Twins got swept by Boston, which means that although we gained on the Rays, the Sox stay up. The Twins suck.

Respect Jeter's Gangster is for the Children

The "Respect Jeter's Gangster" blog joined Johnny Damon's home run club, which raises money for the Children's Health Fund. We are pledged to donate $1.00 for every homerun the Yankees hit this season. We will keep a running tally of the home runs hit and the money donated throughout the season. No homeruns yesterday as the Yankees went with a small ball approach.

Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Alex Rodriguez 18hr = $18.00
Hideki Matsui 7 hr = $7.00
Bobby Abreu 10hr = $10.00
Jorge Posada 3hr = $3.00
Jason Giambi 18hr = $18.00
Johnny Damon 6hr = $6.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 6hr = $6.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Wilson Betemit 4hr = $4.00
Derek Jeter 4hr = $4.00
Shelley Duncan 1hr = $1.00
Total = $87.00
