Yankees Go Greene

The Good

The Yankees called up Shane Greene to make a spot start for our otherwise depleted rotation, and Greene seized the opportunity throwing 6 innings of 2 run ball, and carrying a no-hitter into the 5th.  The offense scored 5 runs, continuing a trend of hitting that is often times associated with major league caliber ball clubs.  Don't look now but McCann and Roberts have been slowly climbing out of their first half slumps, and continued that trend yesterday with 3 hits for McCann and 2 for Roberts.

The Bad

Former Yankee Nick Swisher hit a homerun yesterday to break up the no-hitter.  With his batting average at .198 right now, I can only imagine that the homerun was hit out of spite.

The Ugly

Apparently a fan is looking to sue ESPN, MLB, announcers John Kruk and Dan Shulman, and the Yankees for $10 million.  The charge is defamation of character and "intentional infliction of emotional distress", when the networks caught the fan sleeping during a game and made disparaging comments about the fan.  The only problem is that none of the disparaging comments that the fan alleges were used against him during the broadcast were actually used.  We'll see how far this one goes!

Power Outage

Apart of going Greene means using less power, and the Yankees took that to heart last night.

Brett Gardner 7hr = $14
Alfonso Soriano 6hr = $12
Kelly Johnson 5hr = $10
Carlos Beltran 9hr = $18
Dean Anna 1hr = $2
Brian McCann 9hr = $18
Yangervis Solarte 6hr = $12
Mark Teixeira 15hr = $30
John Ryan Murphy 1hr = $2
Jacoby Ellsubry 5hr = $10
Brian Roberts 4hr = $8
Derek Jeter 2hr = $4
Zoilo Almonte 1hr = $2

Total 72hr = $144
