When Melky Cabrera made that throw on the Felix Pie single in the fourth, setting up a situation where the O’s had runners on second and third, with one out, and the Yankees already trailing by a score of 3-1, I thought that Joba Chamberlain was toast. I truly expected the flood gates to up at that point. But, give Joba credit – he got out of that and then posted two more good innings to boot.
Speaking of Chamberlain, he said all the right things in the post-game about Aubrey Huff mocking him with a fist pump after his first inning homer. Of course, Joba wouldn’t be in the position of being mocked, and then having to deal with these questions, if he toned down his act on the mound…
Hey, is Johnny Damon making his contract situation interesting, or what?
Lastly, how much fun is it to root for a guy like Francisco Cervelli?
