The Bronx Bombers are going into Fenway riding a nice 3 game winning steak tonight, and Joba will face Lester in game 1. Both teams have identical 9-6 records and the Sox have a 7 game streak.
While it is early to put too much emphasis on this series, it is always nice to beat Boston.
Game time is 7:10 tonight, and tomorrow it's the 4:00 game.
In Yankees news, Wang started against Phillie farmhands in Tampa and struck out 11. Most pitches were down, but he did hang a few that would have been hit hard in the bigs. Cashman is pretty sure Wang will have at least one more minor league start. He is working with Billy Connors (theres a name old Yankee fans should remember.) The DL is still a possibility.
In other news, Phil Hughes is 3-0 at Scranton. A-Rod is progressing well, and is expected back no later than May 15th.
