08:16 AM ET 03.13 | While Yankees fans are likely pleased to have bullpen depth, it's also a reason the Rangers are following Joba Chamberlain. Don Welke, a senior special assistant to Texas general manager Jon Daniels, was at Steinbrenner Field on Monday specifically to watch Chamberlain pitch an inning against St. Louis. Chamberlain gave up a hit but not a run. Nor did he walk or strike out a batter. His fastball was clocked at 92-95 mph. In five spring outings, Chamberlain has thrown five innings, given up four hits, walked two and whiffed three. The only poor outing came March 1 against the Phillies at home when Chamberlain gave up two runs, two hits and walked two.

The guy did have great stuff when he first came up.
I don't think he had the personality to be a really good pitcher over the long haul, though, he's too much of an eff up.

I believe the problem was with his being dumb and a trampoline.

So which player's agent planted it, and for what reason?

Joba's handlers did a good job covering up the fact that he pancaked 7 preschool kids during his trampoline incident.

It would be extra fun if Ryan stuck around with the Rangers...I can see Nolan dragging Joba around camp by his ear yelling, "I tole to lissen to me, bwah!!!"

It'll probably get deleted when the mods' mommies wake them up for work.

They're getting to sleep in a little because they had an all night "God Of War" tournament.
Hard to see details in the little photo, is that Hedy Lamarr?
Or maybe Hedley?
