Joe Girardi is speechless at Joba’s new facial hair
Joba Chamberlain was supposed to be the next great thing in the MLB. He came into the league in 2007 with a 99 mile per hour fastball and a nasty slider. Joba took the league by storm, posting a 0.38 ERA as a rookie in 19 appearances. Since his rookie year, Joba’s play has declined. He has posted an ERA over four in three of the last four seasons.
This year, Joba returns with a new secret weapon: a serious stache. Joba’s new facial hair is nothing to take lightly. It is one of the fiercest mustaches the MLB has seen in a while. Joba used to intimidate hitters with his 99 mph fastball. Now that his heater only tops out at about 93 mph, he figured he needed a new way to intimidate hitters: scare them with his facial hair.
If I was at the plate against Joba and his new stache, I know I’d feel uncomfortable in the box. (pictures after the jump)

HIP TO IT
Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez told reporters that while he is still in "Stage 1" of his recovery from hip surgery, he is "devoting 100 percent" of his time to rehab.
As if things weren’t bad enough for the New York Yankees, now they have one of their veterans making some bold predictions.
The Bronx Bombers made a trip to West Point Saturday afternoon to close out a very long and stressful spring training, but it’s what long-time Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte said before the game that has baseball analysts scratching their heads.

The big question, now that second baseman Robinson Cano has hired CAA and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports as his new agents, is whether the switch means that the New York Yankees stand a better chance of signing him.
Brodie Van Wagenen, who will be Cano’s primary baseball agent for CAA, didn’t answer that question directly in an interview with FOXSports.com on Tuesday night...
Robinson Cano is switching agents from Scott Boras to a new company formed by musician Jay-Z's Roc Nation and CAA Sports.
Cano will be represented in baseball matters by CAA Sports' Brodie Van Wagenen. The New York Yankees second baseman is making $15 million this season and can become a free agent at the end of the World Series.

You may have lost Hanley Ramirez, Brett Lawrie, or Derek Jeter for the start of the season. And, if you’re anything like me, you neglected to draft a back-up for that position. If you’re in that unenviable spot, check your waiver wire for guys like Alcides Escobar, Jean Segura, and Kevin Youkilis. If they don’t tickle your fancy, there’s a healthy player on the New York...
And the winner is Hov………again
Jay-Z has always said he isn’t a “businessman”, he’s a BUSINESS man. He is proven that by turning the skill of rapping, into a half a billion enterprise.
According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Jay-Z has partnered with CAA (Creative Artists Agency) one of the most powerful agency in the world, so don’t expect another Master P situation....
Happy Bunny Day, everyone !Since this is a day of major make believe and let's pretend, I've decided to come clean.I now believe this Yankee team, even if Austin Romine ( our "hands down" best prospect and future all star ) didn't make it, will nonetheless win the AL East going away.FURTHER, I BELIEVE WE'LL RUN THE TABLE COME THE PLAYOFFS.We will win every...
Opening Day’s Red Sox-Yankees battle has had a little bit of everything for everyone through the early innings. Whether you’re looking for the new storylines to emerge from the game or hoping to see the same familiar stuff you’re accustomed to, well, you’re in luck thus far.
Kevin Youkilis in pinstripes? Check. Jackie Bradley, Jr. making himself at home? Yup, that too.
Late last week the New York Mets announced that former New York and Boston skipper Bobby Valentine would be doing some pre- and postgame analysis for cable channel SNY this season. However, that isn’t stopping Valentine from talking about his former market.
In an interview with the New York Post, Valentine appears to be following Carl Crawford‘s lead of blaming his struggles...
