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!!!
….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!!!!!
Cutest team ever!!!
