Yankee Offense Backs Up Rasner

The Good

9 runs from this team is a lot to ask for of late, but they delivered. 3 RBI's a piece for Jeter (who hit his 200th homerun of his career), A-Rod, and Gardner. Melky had a pair of hits. And also, would you believe that Ramirez-Veras-Farnsworth-Hawkins combined for 4 shut out innings?

The Bad

Rasner lasted 5 innings while giving up 3 earned runs, 4 total.

The Ugly

I took a look at the Yankees lineup from yesterday's game and only 1 player is batting above .300, and that's a $30 million player so he better be above .300. I think the single word that describes the Yankees thus far is "underachievers". Great players...awful results.

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. Homeruns by A-Rod and Jeter helped keep them ahead in the game, and promote health for children. Thank you guys.

Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Alex Rodriguez 19hr = $19.00
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 5hr = $5.00
Shelley Duncan 1hr = $1.00
Total = $89.00
