Joba Chamberlain was released from the hospital today, and Joe Girardi had this to say, “”I am optimistic that he is gonna pitch for us this year, I am,” manager Joe Girardi said Sunday.”
Wishful thinking. Initial reports are 4-6 weeks before he can even put weight on it. That’s May. And, Joba’s not exactly light on his feet. I say no.
On a separate note, Bert Sugar died today. Anyone reading my blog for miles and points is unlikely to know Bert. He was a gritty, old school boxing writer who had a million great stories. Boxing is no longer as fun to watch as it used to be for me, and Bert’s passing is just another reason to tune it out.
