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...

Could Joba Chamberlain be a fit for the Indians bullpen?

Last week, rumors circulated that the Indians were still interested in adding one more legitimate late-inning reliever to their bullpen. The options are winding down, so one particular name caught my eye over the weekend.

Detroit Tigers rumors: Jason Grilli edition

I know I may sound like a broken record since I am always talking about the Detroit Tigers signing relief pitchers in the offseason, but that is their biggest need.

Now while Chamberlain is a free agent, Nathan is not and reports...

Joba: Hitting Jeter was “The worst feeling ever”

Joba Chamberlain, former Yankee and now closer/set-up man for the Tigers, was thrilled to be able to step up to the mound at Yankee Stadium for the first time as a visitor this week.
