Reeling Yanks Can't Stop Surging Rays (Wink Wink)

The Good

Russel Martin hit a homerun a day after getting thrown out of the game for arguing balls and strikes. It was a solo shot, but in a game where the Yankees didn't do much else it really stands out. Did anyone notice that Dave Robertson's ERA is at 1.08?

The Bad

Rafael Soriano giving up 3 a run homerun comes to mind. After the game, Girardi defended Soriano saying that he's played well for us, and wrote this off as a fluke. What Soriano has he been watching this season?

The Ugly

Russel Martin hit into a triple play, which takes a lot of skill when you really think about it.

Cano and Granderson, where are you at?

Russel Martin hit a homerun to make sure the kids wouldn't leave empty handed, but Cano, who's charity the homerun money goes to, and Granderson, who's our only 40 homerun hitter, have been real quiet of late. There is one more game left, and I demand homeruns!

Mark Teixeira 37hr = $74
Curtis Granderson 41hr = $82
Russell Martin 18hr = $36
Alex Rodriguez 16hr = $32
Jorge Posada 14hr = $28
Robinson Cano 28hr = $56
Andruw Jones 12hr = $24
Brett Gardner 7hr = $14
Nick Swisher 23hr = $46
Derek Jeter 6hr = $12
Francisco Cervelli 4hr = $8
Eduardo Nunez 5hr = $10
Ramiro Pena 1hr = $2
Eric Chavez 2hr = $4
Jesus Montero 4hr = $8
Chris Dickerson 1hr = $2
Total = $438

Soriano in The Bad? That was his best outing of the season!

Betances starting tonight. I think the job should have gone to Buddy Carlyle.

Betances is an interesting choice. I guess the Yankees really want to face the Rays in the post season.

Especially considering Girardi deliberately used his top relievers yesterday and will not use them today. So pretty much everyone who pitches for the Yankees today will not be on the playoff roster.
