I was dying in tears for a few minutes after seeing that. Too darn funny.
On a related note, Joba has lost weight, and now that he’s no longer with the New York Yankees, he’s free to grow facial hair. Joba now has a beard and some say he has cultivated a hipster look:
Is that a relief pitcher or your European history teacher at the local university?
Chamberlain had Tommy John surgery on his elbow in 2011 and didn’t return to the Yankees until Aug. 2012.
