Joba gets it done!

Props to Joba Chamberlain on getting his first career win as a starter last night against the Pirates. He went 6 2/3, giving up six hits, walking one and striking out seven as the Yankees went on to win 10-0. I had a chance to watch his appearance last night and he looked filthy!

I was critical of the Yankees’ decision to move him to the starting rotation. I loved him as a set up man for Rivera and would have liked to see him take over the role of closer once Rivera starts to break down (he does have to break down at some point right?).

But since making the move the Yankees seem to be finding a rhythm. They currently sit 5 1/2 back from the banged up Red Sox coming down the stretch heading into the All-Star break.

  1. Did you bother reading the post? I said I “was critical of the Yankees’ decision to move him to the starting lineup.”

    We’ll see how it plays out.

    So what, I’m supposed to root against the guy because I think he should be setting up Rivera? 😆
