Joba Chamberlain got a taste of the big time today as he played for the United States in the Futures Game and threw an inning in 7-2 loss to the World team in San Francisco.
Chamberlain allowed a run as he allowed a walk, a stolen base then an RBI single by Dodgers prospect Chin-Lung Hu. After Hu was caught stealing, Chamberlain had a strikeout and got the final batter to line out.
Joba is 3-1, 2.60 in five starts for Trenton and will head back there for now.
Thanks to the regulars who posted the lineups within the comments on Sunday. Much appreciated.
Some get-a-lifer impersonated several people including me. So I deleted all those posts. Why people choose to act so oddly is a mystery.
Anyway, I’ll check in here from time to time during the break. As part of our All-Star break coverage, my editors want to post a few polls so keep an eye out for those.
Enjoy the time away from the game and I’ll catch you Thursday from Tampa.
