"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Ohhh Chubbsy Ubbsy

C.C. Sabathia reported to camp lighter; Joba Chamberlain is heavier. My favorite headline today comes from the Times of all places: Heftier Chamberlain Arrives with Thud at Yankees Camp:

Asked Wednesday morning for his impression of Chamberlain, General Manager Brian Cashman said: “He’s heavier. Let’s just leave it at that.”

Told that Chamberlain has said he packed on muscle, Cashman said: “He’s obviously heavier. That’s as much as I’ll say.”

…“You think about it as a manager, you think about what it says,” Manager Joe Girardi said. “As I said, Joba is going to be pretty much evaluated on how he pitches. That’s the bottom line. We’ve been very pleased in what we’ve seen so far.”

The Wall Street Journal asks: Is This the Fattest Yankee Team Ever?

Everybody loves to pick on the fat kid. Well I'm on board for seeing what he does with the weight before making any snap judgments about him; strange, I know...

(That poor kid, I can't believe they made him say that...)

I know! I felt kind of bad about that, but it still made me laugh. I'm going to hell, I know.

And I've now jumped from the "screw Joba" camp to "Go Go Joba"!

[3] Hilarious. Perfect, Alex. That's one of my favorite Rascals pull quotes. That and, "Don't drink the milk. Why? It's spoiled." And "Hey goat, hold it."
