    A ton of guys had multi-homer games yesterday. Ryan Braun led the pack with his three. I’m sure that won’t bother anyone.

    New Tigers reliever Joba Chamberlain hasn’t produced many smiles on the mound recently, but this is pretty cool. As noted by the Detroit Free Press, Chamberlain got a tattoo on his right elbow that has turned the scar from his 2011 Tommy John surgery into a smiley face. Check out this picture which was taken…

  4. Obama compares the Farm Bill to Mike Trout

    Feb 7, 2014, 4:10 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    President Obama was in Michigan today to sign the Farm Bill. I feel like he was trolling Miguel Cabrera truthers up there when he chose to compare it to baseball’s actual best player: The president likened the nearly $1 trillion bill to a Swiss Army Knife for its many policy implications — on agriculture, on…

  5. Joba Chamberlain now has “almost a hipster kind of look”

    Baseball-wise Joba Chamberlain is looking for a fresh start after leaving the Yankees for the Tigers as a free agent, but more importantly Jason Beck of MLB.com writes that the 28-year-old right-hander is now free to fully express himself with facial hair: Gone is the mustache he donned during the end of his tenure in…

  6. Joba Chamberlain has lost 15 pounds, has discovered seafood

    Jan 26, 2014, 11:40 AM EDT

    joba chamberlain getty

    As with Prince Fielder, I’m inclined to wait for something more than mere weight loss to declare a Best Shape of His Life. It requires the weight loss along with some declaration — implied or explicit — that superior performance is soon to follow. Or a suggestion that the shape is unprecedented or something. Sure,…

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

    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…

  8. Ranking the best off-seasons so far

    Carlos Beltran

    We’re almost into 2014, which means we’re only about a month and a half away from pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training — the official start of baseball. Most of the big name free agents are off the board and thus most teams have already finished shopping or have done most of the heavy…

    MLB: Yankees-Brian McCann Press Conference

    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue.

  10. No, the Yankees didn’t ruin Joba Chamberlain

    Dec 20, 2013, 9:44 AM EDT

    joba chamberlain getty

    I think the Yankees jerked Joba Chamberlain around a lot early in his career. They meant well. They thought they had a special talent and they wanted to save his arm and as such they used him as a reliever and then babied him as a starter and when that wasn’t working they used him…

  11. Tigers sign Joba Chamberlain

    Dec 12, 2013, 1:40 PM EDT

    joba chamberlain getty

    Free agent right-hander Joba Chamberlain is leaving the Yankees to sign with the Tigers, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com. Buster Olney of ESPN.com says it’s a one-year, $2.5 million contract. Detroit general manager Dave Dombrowski is always looking to add high-velocity arms and despite his struggles Chamberlain averaged 94.7 miles per hour on his…

  12. Diamondbacks offer $3 million to Joba Chamberlain

    joba chamberlain getty

    Making an already busy day for Arizona even busier, Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports that the Diamondbacks have offered former Yankees right-hander Joba Chamberlain a one-year, $3 million deal. Presumably the Diamondbacks would use Chamberlain as a reliever given that he hasn’t started a game since 2009. He had a 4.93 ERA in 42 innings…

  13. Cubs, Royals among teams interested in Joba Chamberlain

    Oakland Athletics v Detroit Tigers - Game Two

    I saw this floating around Twitter over the past several days It’s loads of fun. From the New York Daily News in November 2007, talking about the Yankees and Marlins and a trade for Miguel Cabrera that never happened: Brian Cashman met with the Marlins at about 6 p.m. last night at the GM meetings.…

    Joba Chamberlain‘s career has gone off the rails after a promising start, but it appears that plenty of teams are interested in taking him on as a reclamation project. More than a dozen teams have inquired on Joba Chamberlain. No surprise, Yankees are NOT one of them. Has plenty of suitors though.— Sweeny Murti (@YankeesWFAN)…

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

    Yankees' Ryan, Cano and Reynolds wait for new pitcher after the Rays scored four runs in MLB game in New York

    It’s official: the Yankees’ season is over after 162 games for just the second time in the wild card era. The Bombers were eliminated from contention when the Indians topped the White Sox 7-2 on Wednesday evening. Just a few minutes later, they wrapped up an 8-3 loss to the Rays, leaving them with an…

    Boston Red Sox Mike Napoli hits a grand-slam home run against the New York Yankees in their MLB game in New York

    Last night, Mariano Rivera surrendered a game-tying RBI single to Stephen Drew with two outs in the ninth. Joba Chamberlain then allowed what became a game-winning RBI single to Shane Victorino in the tenth. Tonight, it seemed like a real team effort as four Yankees relievers combined to allow nine runs in the eighth and…

    Boston Red Sox Jacoby Ellsbury scores at home plate as New York Yankees Austin Romine cannot hold the throw in their MLB game in New York

    Call it “Deja Drew.” After the Red Sox let a five-run lead slip away, things were going all according to plan for the Yankees on Thursday. David Robertson pitched a perfect eighth up 8-7, and Mariano Rivera retired the first two batters he faced in the ninth. That’s when things unraveled. Mike Napoli, who was…

    New York Yankees v Boston Red Sox

    In the lineup at first base in his first game as a Yankee, Mark Reynolds made it count. Reynolds blasted a two-run home run to left field off of Felix Doubront in the second inning, bolstering the Yankee lead to 3-0. Meanwhile, outfielder Alfonso Soriano continued to stay red hot. The former Cub entered the…

  21. The Yankees are shopping Phil Hughes, Joba Chamberlain

    We’ve heard some rumblings that the Yankees are looking to trade Joba Chamberlain. And speculation and common sense suggests that Phil Hughes might be a marketable piece for the Bombers. Ken Rosenthal reports today that, yes, the Yankees are shopping the remaining two of the former Big Three: AL exec: “Yanks aggressively pushing Joba, Hughes.…

    According to George King of the New York Post the Braves and Giants “have an interest” in trading for Yankees reliever Joba Chamberlain. King adds that both teams had a scout watching Chamberlain recently. I was at Target Field last night, when Chamberlain picked up a win against the Twins with a scoreless inning, although…

    Screen Shot 2013-06-26 at 9.41.35 AM

    Sure, the big news about Alex Rodriguez joining Twitter this week is that he almost immediately managed to piss off Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, but as a Twitter addict I’m more interested in who A-Rod has chosen to follow. So far he’s followed 41 accounts, including lots of Yankees-related stuff like the Yankees’ official…

    joba chamberlain getty

    According to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com the Yankees will activate Joba Chamberlain from the disabled list for tonight’s game after the right-hander missed the past four weeks with a strained oblique. Chamberlain threw two innings in an extended spring training game Saturday and told Hoch that he was clocked in the mid-90s, which suggests at…

  25. Great Moments in Core Four love

    May 14, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    joba chamberlain getty

    The Core Four: Derek Jeter. Mariano Rivera. Jorge Posada. And, um, maybe Clay Bellinger? I forget. Not important. What is important is that for years Yankees writers have always made sure to protect the necks of those guys, particularly Jeter and Rivera. Woe be unto anyone who is insufficiently reverent of them and woe, woe,…
