Moose Gon' Give it to Ya

The Good

Mussina went 6 innings allowing just 1 run securing him his 18th win, and a shot at 20. Jose Veras shockingly pitched a shutout inning, while Humberto Sanchez made his big league debut with a perfect inning. Bobby Abreu went 3-5 with 2 homeruns and 6 RBI's single handedly propelling the Yankees past the White Sox. Jeter and Cano both went 2-3 with 2 runs scored. Juan Miranda started his first major league game and went 0-2 with 2 walks and a run scored. Personally, I think it says a lot that in your first big league game you're taking pitches and being patient.

The Bad

Chris Britton gave up a homerun in the 9th taking away the Yankees chances of beating the White Sox 9-1. They finished the game with a paltry 9-2 victory over the Sox.

The Ugly

With Cody Ransom's 0-1 performance last night, his season average is now down to .333 from .750 just a few weeks ago. That has to be the biggest offensive failure since the 2008 Yankees.

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 showed that he was the only one to care for children's health last night by hitting 2 jacks. Everyone else selfishly sat on their bats.

Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Alex Rodriguez 35hr = $35.00
Hideki Matsui 9 hr = $9.00
Bobby Abreu 19hr = $19.00
Jorge Posada 3hr = $3.00
Jason Giambi 31hr = $31.00
Johnny Damon 15hr = $15.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 13hr = $13.00
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 2 hr = $2.00
Ivan Rodriguez 2hr = $2.00
Richie Sexson 1hr = $1.00
Cody Ransom 2hr= $2.00
Total = $170.00

Off topic, but did anyone catch the Tribe/Detroit bench clearing fight tonight? Puts the Yankees/Angels fight to shame! These guys were all scrapping - punching, giving noogies, it was classic! Try to catch highlights on ESPN if you get a chance, it's good stuff! Of course, Gary Sheffield started it...

Did Krazy Kyle tear off Cliff Lee's arm? Did he bodyslamm Victor Martinez?

Here's a five minute video of it...good stuff. Sheffield carrying the bat down to first. What an idiot!

That was a fun fight. Of course Sheffield had to be in there, but oddly Farnsworth did not make an appearance. He wasn't able to perform his patented take down technique. Maybe next time.
