I actually got off my dad's right wing/fundamentalist Christian fwds list after I called him out (copying everybody on the list ) on a completely hypocritical forward. I haven't received any since, and it's been going on 2 years now.

My parents just forward on to me lame-ass innuendo laced jokes. Sometimes they send copies of their bank account info, so those I keep.

I thought they've already said he would move into the rotation later this year?

I always get emails about Obama worshiping at an al Queda mosque while having sex with the pope and refusing to say the pledge of allegiance

That's what they said...but they said in November that he'd be in the rotation from day one. So, who knows...the plan I read was bullpen for 3 months.....minors for one month to get some starts in on limited pitch counts, then back to the Bronx to join the rotation for the final 2 months...but trust me, if the pen is shaky, they'll leave him right there.

I agree. An arm like that backed by his attitude is made for the bully anyways.

BTW - Squints just made out with Wendy Pempercorn.

I've never seen Sandlot.

I am torn on where Joba be longs....I think how Hughes and Kennedy fare will determine where Joba winds up.

The Sandlot is a terrible movie that will make you wish you were a kid again.

In today's baseball it is much easier to find a 3,4, or 5 starter that will give you 150 - 200 innings than it is to find a shutdown presence at the end of a game. So, if Hughes and/or Kennedy can be consistent 6 to 7 inning pitchers, Joba will stay in the pen.

I hear you...but in 2009, Mussina and Pettitte will be gone.....and with the Yanks taking a pass on Johan and Haren, that leaves a few holes.....eh, we'll see.

Right, but Mo can't have much more in the tank either.

That's the one that has the ongoing thing with the dog in it, right? If that's the case, I love that movie. I saw it years ago, and remember being very entertained.

Thought so. Most kid movie irk the hell out of me, they're either too stupid or too cutesy. This one wasn't either, it was just good.

That's a good question. I watch a lot of their games, obviously, and I can honestly tell you that aside from starting off a little more slowly than normal, he was just as good as ever. His stats, command, velocity, etc, show no sign of demise (Though his era was 3.15 which for him is very high)....he's in amazing shape, starting pitching in his early 20's and his delivery is smooth as silk......so, he can't go too much longer, but, he's not done yet....plus, he just signed a 3-year extension.

I see both arguments, I think Joba's a potent weapon either way. Lord knows that when Rivera was setting Wetteland up in 1996, if the Yanks had a lead after 6 innings the game was over, so replicating that would be cool.

That'd be cool so long as the Tigers always have the lead after 6.

Mo is the one yankee that I have always liked.
