I couldn't find a good final word for the title, so I put "efficiency." The Yankees won again even though Burnett wasn't so efficient with this pitches. He threw a lot.

I was going to video tape some of the city of Philadelphia on my trip to the doctors Wednesday but I forgot my camera. I was a little bummed out over it. I know a Yankees fan that wants to say something on camera and I'm going to tape him next week.

I can't believe I'm listening to "Islands In The Stream" by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton right now. I like the song but with all the music I have downloaded from the internet you'd think I could find some thing a little better.

The New York Yankees beat the Toronto Blue Jays by a score of 7-4. Here are my grades:


A+—Eduardo Nunez

I know, I know. He only had 1 at bat but it was an efficient at bat. This guy is doing every thing in his power to make the Yankees' roster. There's nothing more he could possibly do to impress Yankee management any more than he has. He hit a two-run home run.


A—Jorge Posada

I wish Posada would save some of this hitting for when the season starts because I drafted him in fantasy baseball. It wouldn't be cool if the season started and then he went into a slump. He had two runs scored and one RBI.


B—Hideki Matsui

He had one RBI in two attempts at bats. What? That's not a sexy line? Should I mention that he walked as well?

B-—A.J. Burnett

He didn't have great command but he only gave up one earned run in 3.1 innings.


D—Cody Ransom

He went 0-for-3 with one strikeout. If he got up again and made another out he was getting an F. No two ways about it.

F—Brian Bruney

Epic fail. I think that's how people say it or it could be "epic failure." Either way, Bruney failed. He gave up two earned runs on two hits in 1.1 innings of work. Another bad thing he did was walk four batters. He pitched so poorly that I'm pretty mad about it. He doesn't deserve to be on the roster.

Player of the Game
: Jorge Posada

"The Jorge" as I like to call him. "The Jorge Posada." He's been a model of efficiency this spring.
