Minnesota Twins 7 — New York Yankees 3
Back-to-back home runs to open the game against former Yankee Carl Pavano were not enough in tonight’s 7-3 loss to the Minnesota Twins.
Derek Jeter and Curtis Granderson gave Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Carl Pavano a rude introduction as they each went deep to right field to put the Yankees on the board with a bang. A pair of singles in the inning gave them their only lead of the night but that was all the offense that the Yankees could put together against the former Yankee.
Freddy Garcia struggled out of the gate too but the Twins didn’t take their foot off the gas pedal. In his 5.2 innings of work, he gave up 5 runs on 9 hits. The Twins offense was spread throughout the team as 7 of the 9 in the starting lineup drove in one run. Joe Mauer had a pair of doubles and Justin Morneau hit a home run as well as these two former All-Stars attempt to return to form.
Win – Carl Pavano (1-1)
Loss – Freddy Garcia (0-1)
*Joe Mauer – 3 for 4, R, BB, 2 2B, RBI (6)
*Justin Morneau – 2 for 5, R, Solo Home Run (2) in the 6th, RBI (3)
*Derek Jeter – 2 for 4, R, Solo Home Run (3) in the 1st, RBI (7)
*Curtis Granderson – 2 for 4, R, Solo Home Run (3) in the 1st, RBI (6)

Most people would say that the New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter has it all, but they are wrong.
Ok, so Jeter is rich, handsome, dates hot brunettes, has enough World Series Championship rings for every finger on his right hand, Gold Gloves, Silver Sluggers and countless awards in just about everything.
Now, if you asked...
I heard a new complaint about Derek Jeter this off-season. I was on a date with a very pretty brunette and she told me she was from Kalamazoo, Michigan. Of course, being a diehard Yankee fan, I said that the only thing I knew about her hometown was the Yankee Captain. When I said that, she made a face and I expected some typical feedback about Jeter. Mind you, she had Curtis Granderson...
Derek Jeter has a lot of personal accomplishments. He’s a Rookie of the Year, a All-Star game MVP and a World Series MVP, he’s won five championships and now can add doctor to his resume.
That’s because Siena will give Jeter an honoary doctorate during its commencement this May 13, according to an AP report.
Siena gave Jeet the fugazi degree, “in recognition of his leadership...

As I was throwing out papers today, I came across the reasons the Yankees were doomed to lose the first game of their series against the Twins.
The notes were a mess; as I had written them late on Sunday night but my reasoning actually turned out to be pretty accurate so I thought why not pass it along. So, here it is just a day and a dollar...
Jeter has had a very good start to the 2012 season, looking like his younger self.
Exactly one year ago today, Derek Jeter’s average was a mere .241, more than 60 points below his career average, with nary a home run in sight.
Speculation ran rampant that the unthinkable was happening to our beloved captain.
Was he…getting old?
Is it possible, some wondered aloud, that the...
One of the early surprises of the season is the offensive output of Derek Jeter. Going into tonight’s matchup against Minnesota, Jeter is hitting a robust .366 with 2 HRs and 6 RBI. The slow bat that turned him into a below league average hitter the last couple of years has disappeared. I was ready to see him get his 3,000th hit and start the countdown of when his contract will...
Curtis Granderson has not been a Detroit Tiger since 2009, but that did not stop him from honoring a Tigers fan who was killed in the disgusting events that took place at Virginia Tech five years ago. Monday marked the fifth anniversary of the 32 slayings.
So Monday night, Granderson wore wrist bands and cleats to pay tribute to a diehard Tigers fan, Brian Bluhm. Granderson...
New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter will receive an honorary doctorate from Siena during its May 13 commencement.

Pavano on the hill at Yankee Stadium - 04.16.2012
After a lovely weekend of taking two of three from the Angels, the Yankees looked good minus Phil Hughes.
Last night the Yankees opened a four game set in the Bronx against the Minnesota Twins with a 3-7 loss.
It didn’t help that Carl Pavano (aka. American Idle) was on the mound for the Twins, as considering his history in New...
A mind is a terrible thing to waste T...
Siena, in Loudonville, N.Y., says it chose to give the doctorate degree to Jeter “in recognition of his leadership, accomplishments on the baseball field and dedication to improving the lives of young people through his Turn 2 Foundation.” “It means a lot to me, it means a lot to my family for a lot of the work that we’ve done,”...

The Twins came in and took the first game of a four game series when Freddy Garcia just didn’t have it and the Yankees offense disappeared after scoring three in the 1st. Here is our game recap. Here is what the Yankees blogosphere was talking about today.
