Sabathia Wants Blood, Granderson Helps Get It

The Good

Sabathia shut out his former team over 7 innings, striking out 11 of his former teammates. People he used to laugh with, share the same soup bowl with, fight over the soup bowl spoon with. It was tragic when you think about it, but Sabathia didn't even blink. And to back him up, Curtis Granderson rediscovered his homerun stroke, hitting two of them last night. Everyone but Cervelli had 2 hits last night, and even without a hit, Cervelli still had an RBI. Jeter is now 4 hits shy of 3,000, which sounds close until you consider that he's 1,004 hits shy of 4,000, which is the milestone he is really reaching for.

The Bad

The Cleveland Indians.

The Ugly

One of Cleveland's releivers is named Josh Judy! That's so close to being Judge Judy! How did he survive high school?!

Granderson Back for the Kids

The Children's Health Fund receives a boost whenever Curtis Granderson goes on a tear, and four homeruns in four games is definitely a tear. Two last night adds $4 to the exchequer of the Children's Health Fund's homerun club.

Mark Teixeira 25hr = $50
Curtis Granderson 25hr = $50
Russell Martin 10hr = $20
Alex Rodriguez 13hr = $26
Jorge Posada 9hr = $18
Robinson Cano 13hr = $26
Andruw Jones 4hr = $8
Brett Gardner 4hr = $8
Nick Swisher 10hr = $20
Derek Jeter 2hr = $4
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $2
Eduardo Nunez 3hr = $6
Ramiro Pena 1hr = $2
Total = $242
