Joba Suspended for Two Games

In one of the more asinine moves made by the commishioner's office, Joba Chamberlain received a two-game suspension for throwing inside to Kevin Youkilis.

What is Bob Watson thinking here? It doesn't make any sense at all. It's almost to the point that if you're ejected from a game, there's an automatic suspension from Majoe League Baseball.

Joba didn't hit anyone. Yes, Youkilis cried and whined and moaned like a little baby, but that doesn't change what didn't happen. Chamberlain didn't hit him. There should be no suspension.

Joba now has one more career suspension than he does victory. He's got more suspensions than saves. He's got more suspensions than he's allowed runs.

The bottom line is that if Watson thinks that Chamberlain was throwing at Youklilis' fat bearded head, then he should get more than two games, and if he doesn't think it was intentional than the ejection should have been all the punishment neccesary.

Now I know by the "Joba Rules" that Chamberlain wasn't going to pitch until Sunday anyway, but this sets a ridiculous precedent. Earlier this year, Clemens hit Alex Rios after benches were warned and received a 5-game suspension (really, it's a 1-game suspension for a starter). Essentially, Joba is getting twice the number of days for not hitting someone but "scaring" him that Clemens got for hitting someone after there were warnings issued.

I'm not a big conspiracy theorist, but does anyone else think that if Joba had a "B" on his cap instead of the "NY" that he'd be available to pitch tonight?

Seeing as how Watson shook down Francona and a convenient time during the last Red Sox/Yankees series, I'd say Watson is just a real piece of work. The same can be said for a lot of the people in this league.

Maybe you should open your eyes a bit.

Terrible blog, terrible writing.

Terrible.

Take this terrible blog down.

I don't have an account. Why would I sign up for an account on an internet blog site? Do I look like a faggot?

I don't know what is more hilarious. The fact that you can't see by your bias to realize that Watson is just an idiot, especially after that "I'm not a big conspiracy theorist" comment, or the fact that you seem to be feverishly F5'ing all of your blog posts. Boy I sure hope someone is commenting on my BLOOOOOOOOOOG!!!

You mean a Google account? Like it says right there on the right? Yeah, tough thing to 'sign up' for there, genius.

You don't "look" like anything. How could you "look" like something via text? You do seem a bit like an idiot by reading your posts, and not in the Jhonny Damon/idiot way.

Nobody has to "F5" anything - you get comment notification.

Really, didn't your boyfriend teach you how to use the internet?

On the internet, you must take anything anyone has ever said in complete literal fashion.

I do not have a Google account, and I wouldn't be caught dead with a Blogger account either.

When someone says "f5" on the internets, it generally means refreshing. In your case, you are refreshing your e-mail on a Friday night responding to comments that are obviously getting you hot and flustered. I can just picture you sitting on your desk, Mountain Dew can in hand, feverishing typing an ultimate comeback post.

Let's play a game. The game is called, "Answer original point made in first post". Oh wait, you couldn't. Sorry bro, terrible blog.

This is probably the funniest part. Logging in will somehow make it easier for you to identify me. Now that's a laff.

Terrible :D
