Yanks Win Tense Game They Did Their Best to Lose

The Good

Remember back in Spring Training when we were all trying to convince Bronny Cash that Ibanez was the worst signing he ever made and that he should DFA him before he completely ruined his legacy and job security? Good thing he didn't listen to us.

The Bad

How many of us still want Curtis Granderson signed long term? Don't get me wrong. Like most Americans, I consider the strikeout one of the most exciting plays in sports. It's just that I like it when one my pitchers does it, not one of my hitters.

The Ugly

The As have tied up the AL West with one game to play. If Texas were to lose later today, there exists the real possibility that the team once considered the best in baseball will not even have a real presence in the postseason (if they lose the wild card playoff). That would be ugly if you're Texas.

The Only Way to Score

The Yanks seem to think so anyway. Ibanez had the game's sole home run, a two-run shot that tied the game in the ninth.

Raul Ibanez 19hr = $38
Nick Swisher 24hr = $48
Andruw Jones 14hr = $28
Derek Jeter 15hr = $30
Curtis Granderson 41hr = $82
Alex Rodriguez 18hr = $36
Robinson Cano 31hr = $62
Mark Teixeira 24hr = $48
Eric Chavez 16hr = $32
Russell Martin 21hr = $36
Jayson Nix 5hr = $10
Dewayne Wise 3hr = $6
Chris Stewart 1hr = $2
Ichiro Suzuki 5hr = $10
Casey McGehee 1hr = $2
Steve Pearce 1hr = $2
Eduardo Nunez 1 hr = $2

Total 240 hr = $480
