Yes, Joba can start

Little Joba is all grown up.

Not only did Joba Chamberlain get his first major league victory as a starter Wednesday, he showed why GM Brian Cashman wanted him in the starting rotation.

There were no restrictions, and Chamberlain threw 114 pitches in 6.2 shutout innings. He struck out 7 and was still throwing 94-97 mph in the 7th inning.

Joba’s numbers as a starter?

Twenty-five innings, 22hits, 26 strikeouts, 5 earned runs. That’s a 1.80 ERA as a starter.

I wasn’t in favor of Joba being a starter. I have to admit, though, it looks like the Yankees made the right move here.

    He’s Jobariffic! Seriously, after all the hype and the hype about the hype (see page 2 on ESPN their mock view as Joba as “kickassingest”), it’s good to see someone live up to the expecations, after Hughes and Kennedy have struggled.

    Ooooo he beat the Pirates. Next game when he gives up 5 runs in 3 innings all we will here about is how he is a loser and his best days are ebhind him. Yankee fans/NY media is fun.

    I wasn’t a fan of Joba becoming a starter this season, and I’m still not convinced. But it was nice to see the Yankees have some fun yesterday. Abreu and Cano destroying the ball. Jeter and Posada laughing every time Joba came to the plate.

    Did you hear Joba’s post-game interview? I have to listen real hard to figure out who he is talking about because he shortens everyone’s names down so much. He calls Posada by ‘sods? Really?
