Joba Chamberlain to the DL with a strained oblique

May 2, 2013, 3:06 PM EST

The amount of money sitting on the Yankees’ DL just got bigger:

Joba has pitched nine and a third innings so far this year, allowing four runs while striking out seven and walking six, though those runs were allowed in his first two outings and he’s been good lately.

No sense when the injury occurred, but he’s gonna be out for a spell.

    What’s another player on the DL among friends. Life goes on, As a team all the Yankees can do is play the hand they are dealt. And right now the injury Gods are dealing the hands.

      If it makes you feel better, Arod will be reporting to spring training on the 6th.

        It’s a shell game!

    It’s a terrible thing to see a FAT TOAD going onto the DL just as the rainy season sets in. Then again, it probably means it’ll be a little quieter out back by the pond when the females show up.

      Urp.

      You are thinking about HIDEKI IRABU.

      Remember those toads in the beer commercial? Bud-Weis-Er…think Joba saw those ads?

    I had that same stache when I was 17.

      I’m 45 now, and I can’t get mine to grow like that.

    Where ever can they find another right-handed reliever capable of handling a single medium-leverage inning?

    • deathmonkey41 - May 2, 2013 at 3:29 PM

      Bring back Steve Farr!

      • 18thstreet - May 2, 2013 at 3:52 PM

        Or Jamie Farr.

    So this puts our DL payroll over $100 million, right? Nice! (And yet they have kept close to the top of the division – Nicer!)

    • theskinsman - May 3, 2013 at 4:54 AM

      Payroll over 200million= no excuses.

    We’re not afraid of injuries. Bring em on. I laugh at your stinking injuries.

    Oblique strain sounds better than pulled love handle

    • badintent - May 2, 2013 at 8:08 PM

      And we have our HBT quote of the day !! Well played sir

  8. onbucky96 - May 2, 2013 at 3:37 PM

    Jabba on the DL. Ho Ho Ho. Ha Ha Ha. Jabba no playa…

  9. tfbuckfutter - May 2, 2013 at 3:40 PM

    I love that picture because it reminds me of my absolute favorite Butters from South Park moment:

    “You got some crap right there.”
    “That’s my face, sir.”

  10. cur68 - May 2, 2013 at 3:42 PM

    I wasn’t aware than Joba had an oblique to strain. We all live and learn, I guess.

    • tfbuckfutter - May 2, 2013 at 5:46 PM

      His gut muscle knocked it out of place.

  11. cackalackyank - May 2, 2013 at 4:24 PM

    NEEEEXT!

    • cackalackyank - May 2, 2013 at 4:36 PM

      This whole NYY DL thing reminded me of this: whttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rY0WxgSXdEE

    It’s a shame we aren’t going to be able to see that great mustache on the mound for awhile

    • proudlycanadian - May 2, 2013 at 5:44 PM

      Not really!

    • tfbuckfutter - May 2, 2013 at 6:56 PM

      I’m going to go ahead and nominate that for the most unintentionally dirty post ever made on this website.

    Joba Chamberlain to the DL with a strained molestache.
    That reads a little better

    His windows between DL stints seem to be getting shorter and shorter. Soon, he will be landing on the DL after each appearance out of the pen.
