First of all, how about this fantastic picture!
Second, I think it's time to show some sympathy toward Joba Chamberlain. Sunday was Mother's Day. Last week, Joba's mannish-mother was arrested for selling meth to an underage cop in the vast drug-fueled wasteland of the Nebraska plains. How do you think he celebrated Mother's Day? Does he call the county pen? Did his mom ask him to send a couple of cartons of Lucky Strikes? Did she want some funds so that Brooks could restock the library? Was she begging her son to get her out because of Boggs and the "sisters" rape-y ways? It couldn't have been a good day for young Joba. So let's all sit back and wish Joba the best in his personal life...
Anyway, and I'm sure that most of you saw the highlights, Joba had an incident on the mound on Sunday afternoon. He did his normal by giving up multiple runs in the first inning. This culminated with a 3 run homer given up to the great Aubrey Huff. Now Huff and Chamberlain apparently have a history. Last September, Joba struck him out in the 8th inning of a one run game. Keep in mind, the Yankees were struggling to get into playoff contention at that time so every win was big. He struck Huff out because everyone strikes Huff out and did his customary big fist pump. It's trademark Joba. Well, fast forward to Mother's Day after the Huff home run.
Huff, who likes to act pretty tough considering that he has a woman's first name, rounded first while staring at the Yankees pitcher and gave his own version of Joba's fist pump. How cute, tough guy. When he scored, HE DID THE SAME FUCKING THING. Now, if I'm Joba, I throw at that faggot's fucking head the next time up. There's a BIG difference between a September game in the 8th inning and a May game in the first. This was completely classless. Can Joba tone it down? Maybe, but it's who he is and he gets pumped up. I wouldn't like him as much as if he wasn't so emotional. There was no retaliation in the game because Joe Girardi is a pussy but believe me, it is coming. Huff will be wearing one in the ribs at some point this season.
What really pissed me off was watching Baseball Tonight and seeing Peter Gammons piss away any credibility that he had left with me. And the Hall of Famer has lost a lot of my respect over the past few years just because he doesn't even try to hide his love for the Red Sox anymore. It's ridiculous. Ravech asks him his opinion on the Huff bullshit and his reply was something along the lines of, "well, that's what happens when you throw at guy's heads". Really? Are you serious? Aren't you supposed to be the best baseball reporter on the planet and you want to throw around retarded shit like this? Then, on a follow up, Gammons stated that "maybe this will get him to tone it down a bit on the mound". You have got to be fucking kidding me. So it's Joba's fault that a Baltimore Oriole took it upon himself to act like an asshole?
I'm done with Peter Gammons and his biased and ignorant ways. I used to say that if I owned a team, I would hire him as the GM immediately. Not anymore. It appears that that aneurysm that he fought through two years ago turned him into a vaginal secretion. Did he have a problem when Jose Lima was being flamboyant with his Lima Time horse shit? How about Carlos Perez? And God forbid I have never heard him rip on Jonathan Papelbon for being the biggest douchebag on the planet. If you're going to be a biased shithead, at least be an equal opportunity biased shithead. Fuck you, Peter. Get over yourself. You're down with Steve Phillips these days when it comes to baseball reporting. Buster Olney, Tim Kurkjian, and Chris Singleton are far more enjoyable as analysts anyway.
Why don't you go put out another CD that no one will buy, ya dick.
