Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
Joba Chamberlain makes his first boo boo. Glug, Glug.
This isn't to diminish the seriousness of DUI, which is, in my opinion, one of the worst things to do. It seems like every day someone is killed by a DUI driver and it's sad because usually the DUI driver lives while the victims are killed or maimed.
Hopefully this was just one night of bad judgement by Joba.
i certainly wouldn't label joba an "alcoholic" b/c of this. an "idiot," yeah, but not much more than that. the open container on the front seat is a bit egregious, however.
i'm sure Harlan will give him a talking to and it'll be worse for joba than any other type of punishment he deals with, whether it's the law, the yankees or the fans...
according to perrotto at BP, yanks would include phil hughes in a package for peavy. i don't see it happening...
jeter stood next to clemens on the sidelines of a texas longhorns game yesterday. i guess he's supplanted pettitte as roger's BFF...
abreu would like to come back to the yankees. (this isn't strange news). hey, i wouldn't mind it, either (at the right price and years...) he also wants his Phils to win it all. so do i, esp if it's against boston...
Buster Olney notes, "I know a whole lot of image-conscious players who would not have done that."
12 I think either one is correct. American Indian may actually be preferred over Native American according to this article:
That article says that "many now prefer to be designated by their specific tribe". For Joba that would be Winnebago which is also known as the Ho-Chunk (talk about a pejorative sounding name... Don Imus on line 2... ;-)
