Yanks look for ten straight today vs Rays

Coming off of a 4-3 victory yesterday over the Tigers, Alfredo Aceves and the Yankees will look to make it 10 spring training wins in a row.  (Whoopty doo...)

The Yanks won yesterday behind strong pitching performances from Joba Chamberlain, Jonathan Albaladejo and Mariano Rivera.  Joba K'd five over 3 1/3 innings and allowed just one run.  Albaladejo scattered three hits in 1 2/3 innings, and Mo allowed his first hit of the spring; but he also struck out two.

Juan Miranda's two-run blast in the seventh proved to be the difference in the game.  It was tied at two at the time of the homer, but the Tigers came short in their comeback bid in the eighth by scoring just one run.

Another well-played game by the Yanks it seems.  Spring training wins don't mean anything in terms of talent, but I actually think a winning streak of 10 might mean that the team is filled with winners.  Maybe.

Need to save some of those wins for the Regular Season

I think at this point, 10 wins in a row can be excuse for "whooopty doo," even if it is just spring training
