Joba Chamberlain on his 2010 role. via Bryan Hoch:
“I could win 20 games and people are still going to think I could save 50.”
Joba has been made fun of before on this blog, and I’ll do it again now.
I’d be satisfied if you won 10 games — something you failed to do in 31 starts last season. I know, I know. “Joba Rules” and the bullpen are to blame for that. But still. Ten? Alfredo Aceves had 10 wins last year.
For your information: The Yankees went 20-11 when Joba started last year.
