4/30 Recap: No Walk Off, but Indians Lose Late Yet Again

Player of the Game For getting out of a particularly difficult situation and pitching another scoreless inning afterward, Joba Chamberlain is your Indians Player of the Game. His WPA of 1.87 was almost completely derived from his two outs in the fifth, which will be further expounded upon later on. Feathers Up Tyler Naquin continues to be a spark plug for the Tribe offense and...

Brewers reliever Will Smith injures knee...taking off his shoe

If there’s one thing baseball players are good at (besides playing baseball, I guess), it’s getting injured in ridiculous ways. From Sammy Sosa throwing out his back sneezing to Joel Zumaya hurting his wrist while playing Guitar Hero to Joba Chamberlain dislocating his ankle on a trampoline to a million other examples, we’ve seen just about every absurd injury over the...

NRIs of the AL Central: Can Chamberlain Find His Place?

As we move on to the AL Central, we come across arguably the most loaded division yet when it comes to non-roster invitees. Highlighted by two first-round picks and three top-30 prospects at one point in time, let’s keep rolling. Kansas City Royals Player To Watch: Dillon Gee Bare with me, because while this journey begins and ends with the more underwhelming of our five names...

Chamberlain Hoping to Make Squad and Erase Images of “Bug Game”

Ask the average baseball fan in Cleveland what they know or remember best about veteran reliever Joba Chamberlain and the answer will be essentially the same. Tribe fans remember the burly right-hander for what has become known as “the bug game”, or Game 2 of the 2007 American League Division Series.

Detroit Tigers: Dombrowski is playing bullpen roulette

Detroit Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski has been tremendous in his time at the helm of this storied franchise. He’s pulled countless trades to help shape a perennial playoff contender all the while dumping ‘can’t miss’ prospects that have by and large…well, missed. Sometimes the world of sports has a cruel way of preventing teams that seemed to have it all from winning the ultimate...

Detroit Tigers trade rumors: 4 ideal bullpen targets

The rumor mill is already swirling around the Detroit Tigers and what they may do prior to the July 31st trade deadline. One thing is nearly certain – they will add at least one bullpen piece, maybe two. After all, do you see a 7-man pen that includes Pat McCoy, Blaine Hardy (who I actually really like), Chad Smith (intriguing), Phil Coke and Al Alburquerque powering the Tigers...

Joba Chamberlain gives Danny Worth a pregame massage

via Joba Chamberlain added a new title to his resume, Team Chiropractor, Wednesday when he gave utilityman Danny Worth a massage.  It appears that Chamberlain enjoyed it (A LOT) more than Worth did.  What is the adage, “if you love your job, you will never work a day in your life”? Chamberlain isn’t working.  His 4.02 ERA and 1.40 WHIP are proof. Your browser does...

Rewriting Some of Joba Chamberlain’s Famed Rules Upon His Signing With the Detroit Tigers

Joba Chamberlain was restrained by rules for his first few years in the major leagues. For him to find success, the Tigers should cut the pitcher loose and let him be himself. (Keith Allison, Flickr) Once upon a time, the New York Yankees attempted to protect their famed fireballing reliever Joba Chamberlain with a set of “Joba Rules” which governed the situations in which their...
