Straw to Joba: Don’t do what I did

Keeping the news in perspective
The sweet sounds of Sunday night

Via Jim Baumbach, Darryl Strawberry has a few words of caution for Joba regarding his DUI arrest. Strawman, who’s problems are well documented and impacted what could have been a Hall of Fame career, suggests he seek out The Captain for advice because Jeter’s mastered the art of being a superstar in New York. I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again: Joba’s rise to stardom in NY was meteoric, but the fall from grace could be even swifter. Hopefully he realizes this. (h/t Seamus)

    As I’ve said before, Joba should live by the motto, WWJD…What Would Jeter Do? If there is any doubt, don’t do it

      Good advice but that would mean he should be right about to f megan fox

    Stupid Sidney Ponson, its all his fault. Remember that game we were saying Joba should STAY AWAY from Sidney.

    thanks for this story that’s a week old

      No kidding. I can’t believe i was forced to click the link and then read the week old column. Maybe if there was a way I could have read the post without clicking the link and reading the week old column I wouldn’t be upset, but for them to subject me to that was uncalled for. Ummm, wait a minute, that’s not how it works. Nevermind.

      Yeah, Mike, your article-posting-speed is slower than Phil Hughes’ fastball.

      ZING!

      • Adam

        phil hughes’ fastball speed: 91 miles per hour
        mike’s posting lag: 3.5 days

        speed x lag = 7644 miles

        diameter of earth = 7926 miles

        coincidence?

          Holy, shit, Adam, you’re through the looking glass.
          WAKE UP SHEEPLE!!!!!

    How hard is it to not be a freaking idiot? Does Joba really need advice from a former idiot to tell you to look up a non-idiot?

    How about this: Don’t get drunk and then drive a car. If not for your own safety, how about for the innocent people on the road at the same time as you.

    It’s not like these guys don’t have enough money to get someone to drive them anywhere they want…

    “His fall from grace could be even swifter.” – If he starts smoking crack like Strawberry… I think he’ll be alright. Jesus.
