Look What Triple A Will Do To You!

The Good

Phil Hughes pitched a stellar game last night, going 8 innings and giving up 2 runs. Veras and Ponson pitched 2 scoreless innings to help set up the Yankee win. Bobby Abreu hit a grandslam in the 10th to make the score look less competitive than it really was. Betemit and Miranda both had a pair of hits. For Miranda they were the first hits of his big league career.

The Bad

Once again, the Yankees could do little against Burnett who also went 8 innings of 2 run ball, though only 1 run was earned. He struck out 11. Its usually the crappy pitchers that have those kind of numbers against us.

The Ugly

Jeter was out of the game again last night. He got hit in the hand a couple nights back. My guess is that its broken, and has probably been so since getting hit earlier in the season by Daniel Cabrera. He'll likely play again in Boston though.

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. Bobby Abreu hit a grandslam last night, to help put one more dollar in the hands of Children's Health.

Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Alex Rodriguez 35hr = $35.00
Hideki Matsui 9 hr = $9.00
Bobby Abreu 20hr = $20.00
Jorge Posada 3hr = $3.00
Jason Giambi 32hr = $32.00
Johnny Damon 16hr = $16.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 14hr = $14.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Wilson Betemit 6hr = $6.00
Derek Jeter 11hr = $11.00
Shelley Duncan 1hr = $1.00
Xavier Nady 11hr = $11.00
Jose Molina 3 hr = $3.00
Ivan Rodriguez 2hr = $2.00
Richie Sexson 1hr = $1.00
Cody Ransom 2hr= $2.00
Total = $174.00

Let's hope Jeter's hand is healed enough to take the field at Fenway. I want one more signature jump throw from deep in the hole before the season ends.

Me too Jane!

Phil was great, the question with him will be whether he can be consistant from start to start. One good outing followed by 4 mediocre or down right awful outings won't cut it.
