Bats Come Alive (Rejected Title of The New Batman Movie)

The Good

The Yankee offense scored 17 runs on Friday, proving that heat causes rage, and rage causes players to hit better. Swisher hit homeruns in both Friday and Saturday's games, and Jeter has gone 5-7 over the past couple days, driving in 3 of the 17 runs on Friday. Hector Noesi continues to impress with a 3.2 innings scoreless releif appearance of Phil Hughes.

Wade, Ayala, and Robertson have all pitched pretty well for us. They all have ERA's in the 1's.

The Bad

Phil Hughes pitched 4.1 innings of 7 run ball getting pulled for Hector Noesi, when our 7 run lead was looking a little shaky. Now I know Phil Hughes pitched well for us last season, but you know who was pitching well for us this season? Ivan Nova.

The Ugly

Despite a new pitching and life philosophy, AJ Burnett was saddled with his 8th loss of the season, after a 5.2 inning 3-run effort. He's now 8-8 showing that sometimes a new outlook on life still doesn't make you a winner, but it can still make you a multi-millionaire. Keep your head up AJ.

Homeruns Come, Babies Shout for Joy

Swisher has had homeruns in back-to-back games, and Teixeira hit another one to bringing this weekends RJG donations to the Children's Health Fund up to $6. Lets see what happens in todays game.

Mark Teixeira 26hr = $52
Curtis Granderson 26hr = $52
Russell Martin 10hr = $20
Alex Rodriguez 13hr = $26
Jorge Posada 9hr = $18
Robinson Cano 16hr = $32

Brett Gardner 4hr = $8
Nick Swisher 12hr = $24
Derek Jeter 3hr = $6

Eduardo Nunez 3hr = $6
Ramiro Pena 1hr = $2
Total = $258

Did you see the stats on YES about how Granderson and Teixeira combined have more home runs than the entire A's team? If there is a Children's Health Fund in Oakland and it wants to make any money, it should tie contributions to something other than home runs, like dropped third strikes or balks.
