Yankees Win 4 Straight

The Good

Ponson pitched a decent 5.2 innings of 3 run ball, but the Yankee offense scored 12 to get the win. A-Rod, Cano, and Jeter all hit homeruns, and 6 Yankees had multiple hits including Molina and Melky. Ramirez and Robertson pitched 1.1 perfect innings in relief.

The Bad

Jason Giambi was not invited to the ever popular hits party. There's always one who doesn't get invited.

The Ugly

It was revealed yesterday that Jorge Posada's shoulder is in fact still injured and he will likely need surgery to repair a torn labrum and torn rotator cuff. Matsui wants to hold off on his knee surgery and try to rehab, but that's likely not to work. That's a lot of production to go without.

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. It was a good night for children's health as A-Rod, Jeter and Cano all hit one out. Cano is now tied with Melky in the Great C&C homerun race. As you all know, Cano and Melky are in an historic race to topple Derek Jeter's single season homerun record of 24 homeruns set by Yankee shortstop and captain, Derek Jeter.

Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Alex Rodriguez 20hr = $20.00
Hideki Matsui 7 hr = $7.00
Bobby Abreu 10hr = $10.00
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 = $93.00
