Mets Yankees BaseballNotice anything different about Joba Chamberlain in that eighth inning?

While he was warming up in the bullpen, the zipper on Chamberlain’s pants ripped. With only a few minutes to go before he was going to jog onto a baseball field surrounded by a sellout crowd, Chamberlain swapped pants with Boone Logan.

When Brett Gardner grounded out for the first out in the top of the eighth — at which point Chamberlain needed to be ready to go — he was still putting on his new pants. He got them on time for the bottom of the inning and pitched around a two-out double for a scoreless frame.

So who’s pants will he be wearing tomorrow? I honestly have no idea whether Chamberlain was joking, but he answered emphatically.
