    The thought of Joba throwing triple digits with that killer slider makes me all giddy inside.

    Im hoping through all the rehab and work he has put in that his shoulder issues are in the past as well as the elbow being solid. Cant wait to have him back.

    Nice to see the Joba PT rollin' up.

    I predict he will lead the AL in H the year 2013.

    Do you really believe that the Hold is a valuable indicator of a reliever's worth or is this just some shtick you just continue to go with?

    After Tommy John, it stands to reason that his arm will be stronger than we've seen it and his FB topping out at 98-100+ mph wouldn't be out of the norm.

    Around the 1:40 mark. All that time off got him into pretty damn good shape.

    Erik Boland@eboland11 Barring something unforeseen, plan is for Joba to throw back to back tonight and tomorrow night. Will be 1st time in his rehab he's done so

    Joba had another encouraging outing. He pitched 1 1/3 innings, allowing one hit while striking out the side in the eighth. He threw 30 pitches, 23 for strikes, with his fastball sitting between 94-98 mph.

    And I hear he's getting at least one more rehab appearance. Why don't they just activate him already?

    I think it's because he hasn't pitched in so long, they're trying to have him face every situation that he'll face when he's called up, i.e. back to back, coming in to pitch in the middle of an inning, pitching multiple innings, etc. Also, a lot of Joba's rehab was in either Low A or High A and he was completely overwhelming hitters, so they probably want to get him in against some better competition. Dude hasn't pitched in forever, I don't mind that they're getting him as many reps as possible before calling him up.

    I hope everyone remembers what this guy is coming off - TS surgery and a severe ankle dislocation - and doesn't rag on him if he doesn't put up zeros from the beginning. Patience people ...

    Yes, and command generally comes back more slowly than velocity -- so just because he's hitting 100 and getting A-ball guys out doesn't mean he couldn't use a little more work

    Looks like Qualls being traded might mean Joba being activated for tonight's game instead of getting his final tuneup in Trenton.

    Erik Boland ‏@eboland11
    Girardi said Joba headed back to stadium could be activated for tonight's game

    Anything less than 24 IP of 0.38 ERA ball will be a disapointment.

    Wonder what Joba's first reaction was when he saw Cash's or Joe's number on his cell phone around the trading deadline.

    i make that trip once a week... at its worst, it'll be an hour

    what would be ironic is if he's pulled over again... but this time for speeding

    I'm legitimately excited. Hope all that time off did his arm some good. A Joba/DRob/Soriano/Mo pen would have been tits.

    He should be a starter.
