Straw to Joba: Don’t do what I did


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

  2. Manimal says:

    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

    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.
