We now know who Joba Chamberlain is.

I have been watching Joba Chamberlain since he came up with the Yankees
When he came up every Yankee fan said "ooooh" and "aaaah"
Then the Yankees started trying to make him a starter then back in the bullpen,
However Joba struggled and he continues to be terrific one day then awful another day,

So I have one question,

Is Joba the real life Ebby Calvin 'Nuke' LaLoosh aka Meat.

Has anyone ever seen them in the same room at the same time?

If only the Yankees had Thurman Munson to tell him

"You just got lesson number one: don't think; it can only hurt the ball club".

"You have a
million dollar arm and a ten cent head”. .

"You got a gift. When you were a baby, the Gods reached down and turned your right arm into a thunderbolt. You got a Hall-of-Fame arm, but you're pissing it away."

I would agree with this analogy except the Yankees have been the ANTI Crash Davis.

They've been working overtime to have Joba's head screwed up.

I still believe out of mercy the Yankees should deal Joba while he has top value and he will thrive in some smaller market as a dominating bullpen closer
