08:08 AM ET 01.23 | So much for olive branches. Kevin Youkilis never had a problem letting Joba Chamberlain know how he felt on the field, but he's giving him the silent treatment now. Chamberlain -- who had a longtime feud with Youkilis while the third baseman was on the Red Sox -- said the new Yankee never returned the voicemail the pitcher left him after Youkilis signed with the Bombers in December. Is it lingering bad blood or just bad cell phone service? We probably won't know until the new teammates -- or is it frenemies? -- actually talk to each other. "I did everything I can do," said Chamberlain, who was in town to pick up a charity award. "I can't control what Kevin Youkilis does, I can only control what I do and, you know what, we'll go on from there."

This should make for an interesting spring training.

Youk better hope Joba doesn't pitch BP.

They're similar in the sense they are both bad at baseball.

I wonder which one of these fatties will get hurt and go on the DL first.

I'm going to say Jobo.

Has he been getting on the trampolines again?

It's part of his clown training regimen.

He will probably slip on a puddle of sweat left behind by Youk and break his leg.

The Yankees should have Youkilis wear a doo-rag that absorbs sweat.
