It's Batman over Capt. America

TORONTO -- Or, if you prefer, the Yankees over Ryan Dempster. Again.

A online "Power of 2" fund-raising competition between the Yankees David Robertson and the Red Sox' Dempster was won by Robertson, who raised $13,797 for his "High Socks for Hope" foundation, outraising the Dempster Family Foundation by $196. For that, Dempster is forced to wear a Captain America outfit when the Red Sox come to Yankee Stadium in September. Had he lost, Robertson would have had to dress up as Batman.

Can't wait to hear Captain America have to answer questions about drilling A-Rod.
