Yankees Beat Red Sox, Rob Pirates

The Good

The Yankees won a 1-0 game against the Red Sox, who started the influenza epidemic of 1918, drunk off their latest World Series victory. Joba went the deepest he's ever gone into a game, 7 innings on 103 pitches. Also, he and Youk made up. Mo got the last five outs of the game to record his 26th save in as many attempts.

The Bad

Farnsworth only managed one out in the eighth and put two men on. Luckily Mo was there to bail him out, and only needed 8 pitches to do so.

The Ugly

The Red Sox, distraught over the loss of this close game, all came out on the field after the last strike was called on J.D. Drew (aka J.D.D.) and tore their jerseys. They then all wept in fetal positions, and at least three players soiled themselves. It wasn't clear whether the soiling occurred before or after the end of the game.

The Tax Deduction

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 home runs today as the only run came on a Giambi single. A-Rod was going to hit a home run, but he didn't feel like it.

Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Alex Rodriguez 21hr = $21.00
Hideki Matsui 7 hr = $7.00
Bobby Abreu 11hr = $11.00
Jorge Posada 3hr = $3.00
Jason Giambi 20hr = $20.00
Johnny Damon 6hr = $6.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 8hr = $8.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Wilson Betemit 4hr = $4.00
Derek Jeter 6hr = $6.00
Shelley Duncan 1hr = $1.00
Total = $97.00

My Fearless Prediction
Tim Wakefield, while trying to drill Jeter in retaliation for "He-Who's-Too-Ugly-To-Be-Named", throws his knuckleball into Red Sox bullpen and knockout Papelbon.

all I know is, that called strike 3 to Lowell was some bull@$#%.

farnsworth killing us last night.. any idea if marte is going to be a setup man or just a left handed specialist

hard to say, everyone seems to be talking about him as a left handed specialist, I wouldn't expect him to be taking over the eighth, mainly because we have no other lefty relievers that we trust.

I loved Lowell's fire last night. But why he soiled himself is beyond me.
