Oh, well, I guess we can add Roy Halladay to the list of Daniel Cabrera, Mike Maroth, Billy Traber, Bartolo Colon, Pedro Martinez, Steve Ontiveros, Dave Stieb, Tom Candiotti, Moose Haas, La Marr Hoyt, Nolan Ryan, Skip Lockwood, Joe Niekro, Luis Tiant, Ray Culp, Jim Palmer, Billy Rohr and Blue Moon Odom…as guys who have one-hit the Yankees in my lifetime. (Ryan did it twice, for what it’s worth.)
Thank goodness for Ramiro Pena.
So, in his last 5 starts, including this game, Joba Chamberlain has thrown 21 IP and allowed 19 ER. And, the opposing team has a BA/OBA/SLG line of .337/.408/.457 against him in 103 PA. If he keeps this up, you know what? I’d leave him off the post-season roster – and go with a three-man starting rotation in October.
