This is now two in a row.
“What? Not seven in a row?” you may be thinking?
No, I’m not talking about the seven wins in a row for the Yankees. (Which, by the way, is just great.) What I’m talking about here is the Joba & Jeter Show – it’s now two times in a row that they’ve done it.
That’s two starts in a row for Chamberlain which have resulted in a 2-1 Yankees win – where Derek Jeter, both times, was key in plating the winning run late in the game.
And, that brings us back to the seven game winning streak – which has truly lifted the Yankees fortunes this season. Without these two games from Joba & Jeter, the seven game streak would look like this: One win, one loss, four wins, and one loss. That’s a lot different from: win, win, win, win, win, win, and win.
If not for these two “2-1″ wins, the Yankees would be three games over .500 instead of seven games over .500 – and, that’s a big difference.
Hey, this Joba & Jeter Show just might turn out to be something special.
