Joba Chamberlain on facing David Ortiz: “He looks a lot bigger in the box than he does on TV.”

The kid shook off Jorge Posada to throw that 3-2 slider to J.D. Drew. That’s the second time he’s done it and it tells you a lot about his personality and confidence.

In eight appearances: 10 4 0 0 3 17.

Chamberlain also was very pleased to get the news about Ian Kennedy. He said the two have become best friends in the last 15 months since they were the organization’s first two picks of the 2006 draft.

“I can’t wait to give him a hug,” he said.
