Now a Tiger, Joba Chamberlain is excited to have a beard

Jan 25, 2014, 6:05 PM EST

Getting away from the limelight in New York, and all the stress and expectations that come with it, might be just what Joba Chamberlain needs to get his career back on track. He logged 42 innings last season, the most he has pitched since 2010. He’s had Tommy John surgery, surgery on his ankle, and suffered a strained right oblique. But getting a fresh start with a new team isn’t what has Chamberlain excited.

    Best Shave of His Life

    • #nastyswaggedout - Jan 25, 2014 at 8:25 PM

      I mustache you a question, but I’ll shave it for later.

    Poor Jeter. The first time in his life he will be able to grow a beard it will be all pepper and no salt.

    • gibbyfan - Jan 25, 2014 at 6:49 PM

      Wonder if the Yanks will wind up missing him

      • pisano - Jan 25, 2014 at 6:56 PM

        Absolutely no chance of missing Joba, as a matter of fact they avoided using him as much as they could.

        A change of scenery may be good for Joba. Additionally, getting away from the bright lights and hitters ball park in NYC may be the change he needs.

      • mmeyer3387 - Jan 25, 2014 at 11:52 PM

        We must remember that that in Joba first year that many saw him as a pitcher with a lot of promise and potential. Some even went so far as to view him as a worthy replacement for Rivera. My how times and potential can change.

    Obviously meant salt and no pepper…

    • tfbuckfutter - Jan 25, 2014 at 6:21 PM

      Doesn’t matter.

      I don’t think Jeter can grow a beard.

    Yankees facial hair police: You must either look like a child, or someone who molests children.

    • thebadguyswon - Jan 25, 2014 at 7:21 PM

      Well played.

    • anxovies - Jan 25, 2014 at 8:28 PM

      The idea is to look like an athlete, not somebody pushing a grocery cart.

      • tfbuckfutter - Jan 25, 2014 at 8:53 PM

        I know.

        Look how unathletic Michael Phelps looks with a beard.

        LOSE SOME WEIGHT PORKPIE!

        Men grow facial hair. I’ve never understood the obsession with shaving it off, other than a successful effort by razor companies to separate people from their money by creating an artificial “need”.

    He was on Man vs. Food recently, he provided some good advice to Adam Richman on how to eat spicy buffalo wings.

  6. jrs45 - Jan 25, 2014 at 6:42 PM

    Maybe he can cut some and put it on his head lol

  7. deadrabbit79 - Jan 25, 2014 at 7:10 PM

    What a tool

  8. contraryguy - Jan 25, 2014 at 7:12 PM

    A little extra padding for when he does a faceplant off the trampoline

  9. johnnycantread - Jan 25, 2014 at 7:12 PM

    The Yankees have so many old players, they could change their name to the “Graybeards”.

    I read this somewhere, but I can’t remember well enough to give proper credit:

    THE GOAT-TEE: Helping millionaire athletes look like minimum-wage record store clerks since 1993.

    • bigdicktater - Jan 25, 2014 at 8:58 PM

      Are there ‘record stores’ still around?

      • sabathiawouldbegoodattheeighthtoo - Jan 25, 2014 at 9:06 PM

        In Williamsburg there are.

      • dondada10 - Jan 25, 2014 at 10:10 PM

        Are you from Billyburg, Sabathia?

  11. cackalackyank - Jan 25, 2014 at 8:47 PM

    Right, Joba. You sucked and got hurt because you couldn’t have a beard. Get real.

    • doctorofsmuganomics - Jan 25, 2014 at 9:31 PM

      …He didn’t say that?

      Also, my beard and Joba’s beard look identical. I have mixed feelings

    • sportsfan18 - Jan 26, 2014 at 7:24 AM

      At least he’ll be in the playoffs this coming season… his ex-teammates won’t.

  12. dirtyharry1971 - Jan 26, 2014 at 12:59 AM

    good luck joba

  13. clownsfan - Jan 26, 2014 at 1:52 AM

    Fat. Washed up turd.

  14. ez4u2sa - Jan 26, 2014 at 7:52 AM

    Doesn’t take much to get this twit excited.

    Joba is not the sharpest tool in the shed.

  17. jj19871 - Jan 26, 2014 at 1:56 PM

    “Getting away from the limelight in New York, and all the stress and expectations that come with it, might be just what Joba Chamberlain needs to get his career back on track.” AKA, he’s a fat ass you can’t handle pressure!

    With the last name of futter you’re definitely the child molester of the group……
