Joba Chamberlain already rehabbing, on his feet soon

For a guy who had a horrific injury less than a month ago and who, in the immediate, confused aftermath of his injury was said to have actually had his life placed in danger, Joba Chamberlain is doing pretty darn good, actually:

New York Yankees reliever Joba Chamberlain expects to be out of a walking boot for an injured ankle in about two weeks.

Chamberlain dislocated his right ankle bouncing on a trampoline with his son on March 22. The right-hander has resumed working out at the Yankees’ minor league complex, where he played catch in the outfield Friday with his right knee on a stool.

Chamberlain says his arm is at 100 percent following Tommy John surgery, so it’s certainly not crazy to think that, if complications are avoided, he could be pitching sometime this year.

    I know that Len is putting his head into a wall somewhere right now due to your last line.

        You have to be quick and agile in this game, able to jump from topic to topic at a moments notice.
