3 Wins Are 3 Wins

The Good

A weekend sweep of the White Sox places us a mere 3.5 games behind the second wild card spot.  You know, the wild card spot that didn't exist until last year, or in other words, the spot that formerly meant missing the playoffs.  But this is 2014, and perhaps a second wild card will help us see Jeter in one final playoff before he retires!

The Bad

It's been an easy season to be down on the Yankees, but mostly because they've been down on winning.  That being said, I am not going to complain about this 3-game sweep of the White Sox.  Our starters weren't the sharpest, but they got it done, and although the games were close, we managed to pull the wins out in late innings.  No complaints here.

The Ugly

I will complain however about a series loss to the Houston Astro's.  With the exception of McCarthy's stellar 9 inning shutout, the Yankees were hopeless against a team of players who were in Double A not that long ago. 

Mad Money

McCann's been getting hot of late.  I'll take a positive hitting trend at this point.

Brett Gardner 15hr = $30
Alfonso Soriano 6hr = $12
Kelly Johnson 6hr = $12
Carlos Beltran 15hr = $30
Dean Anna 1hr = $2
Brian McCann 15hr = $30
Yangervis Solarte 6hr = $12
Mark Teixeira 20hr = $40
John Ryan Murphy 1hr = $2
Jacoby Ellsubry 10hr = $20
Brian Roberts 5hr = $10
Derek Jeter 3hr = $6
Zoilo Almonte 1hr = $2
Zelous Wheeler 2hr = $4
Ichiro Suzuki 1 hr = $2
Chase Headley 2hr = $4
Francisco Cervelli 2hr = $4
Martin Prado 3hr = $6
Stephen Drew 1hr = $2

Total 115hr = $230
