If the Yankees beat the Orioles, and there's no one around to see it, do they still win?

The Good

Hughes put up a quality start going 6 innings and giving up 3 runs. Certainly not his best effort this season, but good enough. Mark Teixeira woke up from his season long nap to go 3-4 with a homerun. Swisher was equally impressive with three hits and a homerun of his own.

The Bad

Stephen Strasburg had his long awaited major league debut last night against the Pittsburgh Pirates, striking out 14 in 7 innings with no walks. The Pirates argued that mutiny was to blame for their poor performance, but no one was buying it.

The Ugly

So does anyone remember why we let Gaudin go in the first place?

Respect Jeter's Gangster is for the Children

3 Yankee homeruns means 6 american dollars donated to the Children's Health Fund by the RJG. Thanks to Teixeira, Swisher, and Granderson for caring.

Posada 6hr = $12

Rodriguez 8hr = $16
Teixeira 8hr = $16
Thames 2hr = $4

Total = $122

What is this? First, last week, some reporter was saying a Yankee win shouldn't count because it was only Javy Vazquez against the Orioles, now it doesn't count because not enough people show up? In that case, how many of the Mets' wins count?

All those rookies, and Phil Hughes remains the best of them. And I knew going back to that bandbox in his home State would straighten out Teixeira.
