Joba Chamberlain - A Daring Fellow

Not for driving from a strip club with, what was it again, Henny? No, for giving Mike 5 1/2 hours of free airtime to do nothing but bash him all day. Let's just see what he did wrong, shall we? Bear in mind, Mike GUARANTEED he'd be in the 'pen by August. Remember that folks. All season long he, "Mark my words" this and "I'm telling you right now" that that he'd be pitching the 8th. For some reason, Mike doesn't like Joba outside of 2007 Joba. He wants Joba to be the heir apparent so badly that he's not even happy when the kid goes out there and pitches well. Oh Joba, you've really done it this time...Let's just see:

- Staked to a 4-0 lead (can't pitch to score)
- Too many pitches, not enough strikes (100 pitches of fun)
- Too many base runners (12 base runners in 4.0 innings; thats a 3.0 WHIP folks!!!)
- Doesn't switch hit like Bernie Williams
- Bets exactas (sucker bets, folks)

Oh Joba, do yourself a favor tomorrow and keep it tuned to 1050. I'm sure Michael Kay and SP40 will have plenty of glowing things to say about your performance. Keep it off the FAN though. Mike is coming for you.

Give Joba credit, he is keeping to the plan. They want to keep his innings total down, and he is helping them do just that!

bigjf...you must be a writer/producer for the Michael Kay show. Well played, sir.

Dumb arguement based on one game. They are fucking around with his rest days (7/9/10 days between starts). I want him in the pen, but it's the wrong time to call him out.

Loki...This was "Mike Being Wrong" post. Not a "Joba Sucks" post. Trust me, I'm quite jealous of Joba and Hughes. I'm even jealous of Kennedy, Gaudin and Mitre.

Joba had a bad game? They need to put him in the pen. From an outsider's perspective, I don't see the Yankees putting him back in the pen, so those who want him there just this year need to give up on that for the time being.
