• Joba update

    Joba Chamberlain made another rehab appearance yesterday, this time with Double-A Trenton. He entered the game with two outs and the bases empty to get some work coming into the middle of an inning, and proceeded to strike out the side after allowing a leadoff single in his second inning of work. Altogether, Joba allowed one hit and struck out three in 1.1 innings of work, and apparently saw his fastball velocity top out at 98 MPH. The plan is for Joba to make one more minor league appearance, probably with Trenton as well, to make sure hes sharp enough to return to the big league roster. His rehab clock expires on August 8th, so he can make as many appearances between now and then as the team likes, but it sounds like he could be back up by this weekend now.

    Never read Ball Four, wish I had, but back then the book was ostracized and Bouton was considered a snitch, and I bought into that mentality, so I never

    In Ball Four, Bouton also made a few references to ball players calling each other "Meat."

    So I just watched a replay of the 78 WS clincher for the Yankees over the Dodgers on YES (Yankees Classics), and it reminded me of something I'm not sure
