Joba to Mike Francesa, others: "Suck it"

Joba Chamberlains numbers since the All Star break:

21 2/3 IP, 0.83 ERA, 19 K, 8 H, 8 BB

Two words. Starting. Pitcher.
Once again, I reiterate: Pitchers that have command of 3+ pitches that have the ability to throw 5-6 innings are, by definition, starting pitchers. Phil Hughes is proving that good pitchers get outs whenever they toe the rubber. Though it has taken a little time for Joba to get his sea legs (he is 23 years old, by the way), another lights-out start last night proves that the Yankees have placed him in the role that allows them to get the most value out of his talent.
