Injuries? What injuries? So The Horse has a bad groin or hip or both or whatever. So Brett Gardner's thumb is still banged up. So Marcus Thames is heading for the DL with a strained hamstring (much to the disappointment of all flyball-hitting AL players). The Yankees just keep plugging motherfuckers in and having them perform and keep winning games.
Another quality start from the suddenly solid Javy Vazquez, a grand slam from Jorge, 2 shutout innings out of the bullpen by D-Rob and Chad Gaudin. Oh, and some old fart named Jeter went 2-4 with w 2 HRs, 4 RBIs, and 3 runs scored. But in defense of all of his critics, they were 2 pretty overrated-looking home runs and 3 of the 4 RBIs looked a little slow moving to their left. Yep, just another underachieving, not-that-good day at the plate for Jeter as he continues to put up pedestrian .295-8-39-42 numbers from the leadoff spot. Guy should really just hang 'em up now before he starts embarrassing himself out there.
