Keep the Streak Going: The Yankees have won 7 straight games and have won 20 of their last 25 games.
Jobamania: Joba Chamberlain takes the hill tonight and he is coming off what is probably his best start, in which he gave up 1 run on 3 hits and 6.1 innings. The question is, can he produce two consecutive quality starts?

UPDATE 8:31: So, I haven't really seen much of this game at this point, but it seems like Joba is pitching well again. I just saw him get out of a second and third jam with a strikeout and he did his whole fist pump celebrations. Maybe that's what Joba needs, to return to his celebratory ways. He's back to being himself, and he's a better pitcher that way.

UPDATE 8:40: Why is Michael Kay obsessing over what people like cotton candy? According to my brother he's been talking about it for 2 innings or so now.

UPDATE 8:49: So the YES cameras kept showing Brett Anderson in the dugout and this kid is nuts. He kept slipping his thumb off of his necklace and was drinking his water and looking down and kept repeating it while sitting in the dugout. He has to have OCD or something. Kid is crazy.

UPDATE 9:04: Another 1-2-3 inning for Joba. I wonder if he comes out for the 8th. There's been alot of talk of his innings limit, but he is dealin right now. Not sure what his pitch count is either.

UPDATE 9:22: Joba back out for the eighth.

UPDATE 9:26: Ok, so a single and a hit batter will knock him out of the game. Now it's Phil Coke time. Still an excellent outing for Joba.
