I'm not sure you'll hear about this the rest of the day, so I wanted to get this news out there just so you avoided the dangers of possibly missing it. Really, I can't imagine there will be any televised coverage of either event and the results will probably be buried in the box scores so it's probably best for you to pay attention now.



Tonight in the Bronx, former reliever Joba Chamberlain will make the first start in a career that Hank Steinbrenner hopes will last at least 15 years. There are sure to be plenty of fist pumps if things go well against the Blue Jays and Tiger Woods may or may not be on hand to offer a few pump tips (he certainly won't be heading to Pittsburgh for the Stanley Cup's Game 6).

A few hours later in San Francisco, Pedro Martinez will make his first start in two months after injuring his hamstring in his season debut. While Mets fans might tell you they are hoping his return will finally lend a bit of consistency to the rotation, it's more likely they're wishing Martinez will simply get through the game healthy and not have to return to New York ahead of his team to see yet another specialist.

That said, which pitcher will turn in the better line from tonight's game?

Which pitcher's performance might actually force SportsCenter to shine a little bit of the spotlight toward them, even if it's near the end of the show?
