Watch Joba Chamberlain pitch on TV!!!

By

In about 2 and a half weeks. (sorry for the tease)Â

Joba was named to the USA squad for the 2007 Futures Game, which takes place Sunday July 8th at 2pm, and will be telecast on ESPN (or ESPN2, one of those damn channels). Both Phil Hughes and Jose Tabata made the game last year (you can watch watch Tabata almost talk off Hughes’ head here), but this year the Yanks only have one representative. You can check out the World Team roster here.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

    I was under the impression that each ML team names two players for this game. Have they changed the rules?

    The only rules as far as the rosters go is that each team must have at least 1 representative. The guys that put the rosters together (MLB & BA) try to get one player from each team on both the US and World rosters, but with only 25 players per team, it’s inevitable that some teams will have only 1 player in the game. It just happened to be the Yanks turn to get the short end this year.
