Slam a lam a ding dong baby

Melky Cabrera went and slam a lammed last night as the Yankees beat up on the Indians a night after getting an arse whipping from the very same Indians. This means that the Bombers now have five Grand Slams on the year, two each from A-Rod and Johnny Damon and the one last night from the Melkbino.

Looking at some stats in the AL for batters with the bases loaded, two Red Sox players lead the ABs with the bags juice (Varitek, 20 and Nixon, 16) Varitek has slam a lammed once and Nixon has failed to do so. Damon is hitting .600 for the year (6/10) with 15 RBIs in those situations which is pretty damn impressive I think.

Most hitters are better with the bags juiced as they know they will get a good pitch to hit but Nick Markakis, the Orioles rookie is hitting a lowly .091, only Travis Lee (.000 0/8) is lower with a minimum 8 ABs.

Robinson Cano is only hitting .100 but A-Rod is 5/9 (.556) in these situations. I'm not sure what this blog is aiming at but I just wanted to write a blog entry titled 'slam a lam a ding dong baby'. One thing though that has come out of it, the Sox #5 hitter seems to come up very often with team mates standing at 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
