Re-Signing Joba Reeks Of Desperation

Joba Chamberlain   The Detroit Tigers added another arm to the bullpen mix today by re-signing Joba Chamberlain to a 1-year, $1 million dollar deal, plus incentives.

Detroit Tigers: Joba Chamberlain Can Help Again in 2015

It is no secret that the Detroit Tigers bullpen was the most glaring weakness of a team that was supposed to contend for a World Series. One of the few successes, however, was Joba Chamberlain. Chamberlain is not close to being one of the top relievers in baseball. He is good enough though that he would be able to help a team out, especially one looking to make a deep playoff run...
