Eight Days Of Rest For Joba

Thanks to the Joba Rules, Joba Chamberlain will get eight days off before his next start.

He had about the same amount of time off during the All Star Break and ended up having three excellent starts. If he comes off this latest break and has three more great starts, what will it tell us?

Will it mean that he's out of shape? I can't help thinking about that as a possibility. Joba is a kid, only 23 years old, but you have to admit that he's not a lean, mean fighting machine.

During an appearance on MLB Network earlier this year, before Spring Training, Joba mentioned a lunch date he had with CC Sabathia:

His interviewer looked at him and said, "You ate with CC?"

Joba replied: "CC and I can put away some food."

I'm sure they can. Will those two be the next two spokesmen for Nutrisystem For Men? They could make it a competition. Who will lose the most weight? I'm not a betting woman, but I could even see people taking bets on it. Online Betting and MLB Baseball Betting could take a whole new turn! Just a thought.
