    I'm no doctor, but I think it's a safe bet he's done for the year. So much for that insane bullpen.

    That was one of the first things that went thru my mind as well.

    Joba's been one of my favorites since he came up--even thru all the ups and downs. So this sucks.

    At least he didn't pull a Bobby Jenks or Matt Bush.

    he's been one of my least favorite yankees on and of the field in recent times

    so much expectation and potential and he only tiptoed around success

    Some of his failures is on his shoulders but the Yankees have played a role as well.

    Re: Joba.... Dislocated ankle

    Knowing how terrible the Yankees are at handling contracts, there is probably an injury bonus in store for Joba.

    I realize that - I meant this time around. I was annoyed at Joba for his stupidity and then five minutes later I read about Matt Bush hitting a biker and driving over his head (thank God he had his helmet on).

    I was really looking forward to seeing him come back and hush all the critics...oh well what can you do, here's hoping to a speedy recovery.
    I'd like to thank the good Lord for making me a Yankee fan

    Would never have happened if they left him in the bullpen.


    Bad bad bad bad news. Joba is one of my favorites.

    Actually if they knew how to build a bullpen he would have never been called up and they would have brought him along properly.

    It was a bad and weak jab at the b-jobbers of a few years back.

    I think even you are not going to be able to blame this one on the Yankees.

    I feel very sorry for Joba. Not quite as sad as Brien Taylor, but similar themes.

    I hope he can get another chance to make some money from his gift.

    Re: Joba.... Dislocated ankle

    Sad news - I thought maybe he'd be able to regain at least some of his former success. Between the injuries and questionable management of his career, we're probably never going to know how good he could have been.

    Does this mean he's done for the season?

    How Long does a Compound Fracture take to Heal?

    The healing time varies according to the severity of the fracture, and the health and age of the patient. The callus of healing bone usually can be seen on X-ray in about six weeks in adults, and earlier in children. However, this first mineralized bone is not as strong as mature bone, which slowly forms by a process of remodeling, which can take up to 18 months.

    Usually, compound fractures take much longer to heal, due to the amount of injury that the bone and the surrounding tissue sustains, and also because of the higher rate of complications caused by non-union of the joints and infections.

    Yeah. He has to be. That's his push off ankle too.

    Re: Joba.... Dislocated ankle

    Daily news article said he lost so much blood it could have been life threatening

    Also quotes a DR in that field saying it is a very dangerous injury which has resulted in amputation of the leg due to the open wound and breaking the skin envelope.

    All in all, if he comes out of this able to walk, I would consider this a plus. Really don't think he will ever pitch again, and almost certainly not for us,

    Man this is heart-breaking. Really hope we'll see him pitch again one day.
