Aw, crap. It was me.
We saw nascent stirrings of this on photo day, but it looks like Joba Chamberlain's mustache is officially going to be a thing.
This is it. The very least amount of hair a man can be covered in and still considered to have a mustache and the very most amount of hair a man can be covered in and still be counted among those walking upright and having moved on from dwelling in caves.
Well, here's another odd chapter in the continuing career of Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain. Matt Wieters led off the top of the 12th with a soft single to left field, but a shard from his broken bat struck Chamberlain, who was still on the mound, and the Yankees reliever had to leave the game in favor of David…
Baseball celebrations make for great, out-of-context photos, and Joba Chamberlain pouring some (possibly frigid?) champagne down Ichiro's back after the Yankees clinched the American League East title last night is another excellent entry, especially when you consider that Ichiro's reaction is maybe the fourth-best…
The New York Daily News got this the other day, but it just came to our attention. As you can hear in the audio above, Joba Chamberlain's injury was reported as a "compound fracture" of the ankle.

We didn't ask for this, to get caught up in Florida's trampoline arena turf war. We just wanted to point out the incongruity of a major league ballplayer suffering a horrific injury at a child's playplace. But there's no going back.
Today we received a letter, from Al Palladino, Sr. VP at Rebounderz® Franchise and Development, Inc. Mr. Palladino takes issue with our headline last week that implied Joba Chamberlain injured himself at one of the six Rebounderz® facilities in Florida.
All the pieces fit, don't they? Strangely spelled first names, injured pitchers...actually, that's about it. Don't let that stop you though, Bill Madden. According to Madden, Chamberlain had a "death wish for his career." So, it makes all the sense in the world that he finally pulled it off at some glorified romper…

Your morning roundup for March 7, the day the Times informed us that Hollywood stars are "insulated from the consequences of their bad behavior."
This morning's conventional wisdom: "Joba's out of shape." Headline just posted on Yankees.com: "Added muscle has Joba Chamberlain eager to throw."
The circus is back in town! Just when you thought it might be a quiet Yankees Spring Training, with everyone under contract and saying the right things, here comes Joba, larger than ever.
Chamberlain's living it up at Disney World as we speak, and the husky manchild appears to have made a new friend.
Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and the blogosphere to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.
Confession: I'm a Yankees fan, which gives me, like any other Yankees fan, the right to opine about the best interest of Joba Chamberlain's arm. Mike Francesa's also a Yankees fan, and he hosts a radio show, which, apparently, makes him doubly passionate about the precocious righty.
