Another Offensive Explosion!

They Won Again, Their 7th In A Row

Seriously, the Yankees are amazing. They can’t stop hitting. It’s so cool. And all things considered, the pitching was pretty good, too. The Yankees beat the Blue Jays last night 10-5.

Pitching Analysis: Chad Gaudin started for the Yanks, and he was…ehh…decent? He only went 3 & 2/3 innings and threw 80 pitches, but he kept us in the game. He gave up 3 runs on 4 hits 3 walks and 2 strikeouts. Not too bad, considering he is Chad Gaudin. Alfredo Aceves relieved him, and he went 2 & 1/3 and gave up 2 runs. Robertson, Bruney, and Marte combined for a scoreless rest of the game. Damaso Marte is not making me nervous anymore. Since coming off the DL, he has been superb. His ERA is now only 8.38, which sounds awful, but it used to be like 15. He is proving that he will be very valuable for this team. And Robertson, he is something else, too. He is a strikeout machine. I hope the Yankees hold on to him, because I think he has the potential to be a dominating force in the pen.

They both have high socks and cool windups. And they are both suprisingly good!

Defensive Analysis: It was pretty good last night. Arod made an error, but whatever. Jeter made a nice play, though. He is having a fabulous offensive season, but his defense has been great as well. I think Jeter has proved this year that he can play shortstop and will for the rest of his Hall of Fame career. Jeter should be MVP this year. I don’t care if Joe Mauer hits .400. Without Mauer, the Twins would still be losing. Without Jeter, the Yankees wouldn’t be in the position they are. They would be behind the Sox. Jeet has been so clutch for this club, and he means so much. He is the MVP, no question about it in my mind. I just hope the voters aren’t as blind and stupid as I think they are. Vote for Jeter!!!

The only time A-Rod and the Yanks get tripped up is when A-Rod collides with police officer Lisa Hayford while chasing down a fly ball in foul territory during the fifth inning.

….Awkward…That’s not Kate Hudson, Alex…..

Offensive Analysis: In the 1st with the bases loaded, Matsui got a bases clearing triple, but it was changed to an error on the right fielder. But who cares? The runs counted. Then Jorge drove in Matsui with an RBI single. 4-0 Yankees.

My man Melky got himself an RBI double in the 4th. He is out of his slump. His average is at .277. He is quite a force from the #9 hole. I love Melky. In the 5h, Johnny led off with a walk, followed by Tex’s walk. Arod came through in the clutch again with an RBI single. He is hitting the ball so much better lately, using the whole field, this is the Arod I remember. Mmm…I like this Arod! Later in the inning, Jorge got another RBI single. 7-3 Yankees.

In the 9th, the Yankees were still swinging the bats well. Alex Rodriguez hit a 2 out, line drive homer. It was amazing. It got out so fast. Michael Kay was like, “Does it have the heig- See ya!” He couldn’t even finish “height,” the ball was already out. It was cool. Matsui walked, Jerry pinch ran, and Jorge crushed the ball for a 2-run homer. it was 10-5, and that was the final score.

It was another fun day to be a Yankee fan. The heroes are Jorge Posada, for going 4-5 with 4 RBI, and Arod for his 2-4, 2 RBI night and for once again proving that he is clutch. The Yankees have won 7 in a row, and things look great right now. The Smelly Sox won, too, so our lead remains the same. The Yankees are 86-48. Look at how good that is. They are almost 40 games over .500! GO YANKEES!!!! I LOVE YOU!!!!!

Mark Teixeira (l.) and Alex Rodriguez get high fives after scoring on a Toronto error in first inning.

Cutest team ever!!!

I was laughing so hard when A-Rod ran over the lady cop! She didn’t even crack a smile. So serious! He said after the game that he was embarrassed, but maybe they shouldn’t have their security people sitting on stools on the field!

Nice photo of A-Rod…that answers a few questions, I think…ha, ha! And I would so vote for Jeter! He is Superman :O)

I did feel bad for Alex, he had too much momentum going after that pop-up and he ran right into the cop. He did have a funny comment afterward about it, saying something along the lines of he hoped she didn’t read him his rights. Good to see that both were unharmed. LOL

That’s basically how I feel as well. No one was expecting a Sabathia-like performance out him, so the fact he didn’t blow our lead and only gave up 3 runs is fine with me.

I’m glad Robertson and Marte are proving themselves worthy of the Bigs. We need them around and we need them to dominate! And the offense, well, that’s pretty much self explanatory. This offense is incredible; how they can always find a way to make runs is amazing. I love this team!

That incident with A Rod and the female security officer was pretty funny. Usually they watch a little closer and jump up stool and all to avoid something like this. Our security person has jumped up and run many times just this season. I think they have to be on the field to make it safe for the players. They have secuirty on the field and on the othr side of the barriers. Fans can get out of hand.
