Jays Take Second Straight Game

The Good

Garcia didn't give up any runs in the second and third innings. Also, playing in a dome means weather is a non-factor.

The Bad

Garcia did give up runs in the first, fourth, and fifth innings. Six runs in total, five earned.

The Ugly

The concept of the earned run seems problematic to me. We can't simply say a guy gave up runs, we have to throw it in his face and point out that he 'earned' them with his crappy performance. I guess whoever invented baseball statistics was a real d**k.

Where's Our Derby Champion?

No home runs last night. Our guys get a little disoriented when playing in a dome, spending most of the game wondering where the sky went.

Mark Teixeira 25hr = $50
Curtis Granderson 25hr = $50
Russell Martin 10hr = $20
Alex Rodriguez 13hr = $26
Jorge Posada 9hr = $18
Robinson Cano 15hr = $30
Andruw Jones 5hr = $10
Brett Gardner 4hr = $8
Nick Swisher 10hr = $20
Derek Jeter 3hr = $6
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $2
Eduardo Nunez 3hr = $6
Ramiro Pena 1hr = $2
Total = $248
