Joba distracted? Yanks lose boring game to Canada

The Yankees faced team Canada today, and it appeared to be a good matchup going in with Joba Chamberlain on the hill.  Peter Abraham reported otherwise:
UPDATE, 1:35 p.m.: In other good news, Joba Chamberlain was taken out of the game before he got an out. Four walks, a hit and a wild pitch. It’s now 5-0 Canada.
Something tells me Joba may have been thinking about more important things (A-Rod).  This has to be his worst appearance in his professional career.  It reminds me of the ALDS against the Indians a couple years ago - don't get me started on that.

The Yankees gave up six runs in the first inning, and that was it for scoring for the rest of the game.  After Jonathan Albaladejo gave up the sixth run in the first inning, the Yankees' bullpen shut Canada down.  Unfortunately for the Yankees, they were held to four scattered hits (two doubles).
