Yankees Report Card
Guys who did their jobs:
- Johnny Damon, the hottest Yankees player, with a game-tying HR
- Hideki Matsui- he looks like he will commit harikari when he gets an out. Thankfully he had a HR today.
- Melky Cabrera- he walks now, making him a dangerous threat
- Derek Jeter rebounded from the last game with 2 hits and walk
- Ramiro Pena. With A-Rod returning today, the kid had a single, walk, and run scored
Guys who didn’t do their jobs:
- Mark Teixeira- the only Yankees player who is booed when he makes an out
- Nick Swisher doesn’t look comfortable at home. His home/road numbers are skewed
- Robinson Cano, in admist of his first slump of the season
- Andy Pettitte- thanks, Andy.
- Jose Veras- boy is he in every game, or what?
- Mariano Rivera’s velocity wasn’t there; his arm felt weak. He gave up back-to-back HRs in the 9th after Damon tied it up. There was mostly silence at the Stadium, with scattered boos among polite claps.
How the Yankees lost: Choke hitting, bad starting pitching, bad bullpen. Who says the Yanks can’t run on all cylinders?
