Game 49: Joba the almost-starterBy
Short game thread today because I’m working to restore our posts (but not our comments) from the last two days. We’ll be back up too full strength soon.
The big news of the day is of course the pitching plan for the day. Joba Chamberlain will be throwing 45 pitches in relief of Mike Mussina this afternoon. For Mussina, he’s looking to recover from the shortest outing of his career, and instead of facing Felix Hernandez, he’ll go against Carlos Silva. The Yanks are 3-1 with A-Rod back in the lineup.
