Yankees Make it 5 Despite Posada's Lawsuit

The Good

Rasner put up a good outing throwing 5.2 innings of 2 run ball. Robertson-Veras-Farnsworth-Giese pitched a combined 3.1 innings of scoreless relief with Farnsworth striking out 3 in his inning. The offense came alive in the later innings with a homerun by Abreu, and RBI's for Jeter and Cano. Abreu, A-Rod and Cano all had 2 hits.

The Bad

No love for Cabrera, Moeller, or Gardner in the hits column. That's still three spots in the lineup you'd like to see more out of.

The Ugly

Abreu hit his 3 run homer off a guy named Slowey. What a name for a pitcher. Also, the Yankees committed 2 errors. You can't do that.

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. Abreu hit a 3-run jack last night to help the cause.

Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Alex Rodriguez 20hr = $20.00
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 7hr = $7.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Wilson Betemit 4hr = $4.00
Derek Jeter 5hr = $5.00
Shelley Duncan 1hr = $1.00
Total = $94.00

The Disappointing
I miss the days when Yankees grounds crew gave out free Heart Attack Pills before Krazy Kyle took the mound.
Anybody know why Joe G took Moeller out of the game?

I think Matsui and Posada should have surgeries now before things get worse.

I agree. Keeping a single's hitting Posada DHing and playing 1st base doesn't make sense. We could have kept Morgan Ensberg for that. He needs to get healthy and be ready for next season. Chad and Molina will do just fine. Championship teams have done more with less.
