It's a good move to make by the Yanks at this time with their struggling rotation. They shouldn't let that 95-100 mph fastball go to waste. All eyes will be on Hank Steinbrenner if Joba doesn't get it done on Tuesday. In that scenario, people will say how Hank put too much pressure on Chamberlain before he was ready. That said, I predict a decent outing by Joba on Tuesday.

He was pretty bad... he looked very jittery and nervous, which kind of surprised me. And, he had a LOT of problems finding the plate. I think he is destined for many quality starts this season, though, as he settles down.

From what I saw and after hearing him after the game, I think it's just nerves. First major league start, team needs a win, dad in the stands, plus 55,000 cheering fans expecting perfection. He plays a very different Royals team this weekend from what they were at the start of the season. I expect a bounce back.
