The Yankees Win!

The Good

Ramirez-Coke-Bruney combined to pitch 4 innings of 1 hit ball. Coke pitched two perfect innings. Abreu had a pair of hits and stole two bases. A-Rod went 3-4 with 4 RBI's. Cano also had a pair of hits.

The Bad

We won the game, but Carl Pavano's start wasn't quite a progression from his last one. He lasted 4 innings and gave up 3 runs. Edwar Ramirez got the win. Jose Veras has also been awful of late, giving up another run in an inning of work last night.

The Ugly

Tonight its Darrell Rasner vs. Scott Kazmir. Scott Kazmir! The offense needs to bring its A-game to this one.

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. A-Rod hit another homerun last night only this one required instant replay to decide whether it was fair or not. After reviewing the tapes the umpires felt it was in the best interest of children's health to give A-Rod his homerun.

Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Alex Rodriguez 31hr = $31.00
Hideki Matsui 9 hr = $9.00
Bobby Abreu 15hr = $15.00
Jorge Posada 3hr = $3.00
Jason Giambi 28hr = $28.00
Johnny Damon 12hr = $12.00
Morgan Ensberg 1hr = $1.00
Robinson Cano 13hr = $13.00
Chad Moeller 1hr = $1.00
Wilson Betemit 5hr = $5.00
Derek Jeter 8hr = $8.00
Shelley Duncan 1hr = $1.00
Xavier Nady 9hr = $9.00
Jose Molina 2 hr = $2.00
Ivan Rodriguez 2hr = $2.00
Richie Sexson 1hr = $1.00
Cody Ransom 2hr= $2.00
Total = $150.00

The Yankees and the Big G each lost a must-win combat tonight.

The Big G was hammered and had to pee... and he was pushing when he should have been pulling

Where's the patriotic security guys when they're needed?
Had they thrown the Big G behind bars for wanting to pee, this horrible incident could never have happened.

But then the Big G challenged them to a game of beer pong with a twist: one of the cups would be filled the Big G's pee. I think him and Joba lost though.
