Interesting, interesting, interesting.
In a land-slide, Joba wins. If you ask me, the players are apparently reading too many New York newspapers.
It's not hard to decipher what is going on with Joba and with what has gone on for the past two years. New York was ready to smash in some windows a few nights ago when Chamberlain gave up a grand slam against the Mariners in the eighth inning, giving up the lead. Fans were screaming, asking why this guy is still allowed to pitch.
But what went right through their thoughts was the fact that he had a 2.25 ERA in the eight appearances before that.
This has been going on forever. Yes, he is inconsistent. But the way management has handled him has been extremely detrimental in that regard. Fans, the media, and apparently players love to beat this guy up, but it is completely unnecessary and inaccurately provoked.
