Slow day of newsgathering here at the Stadium. Ron Villone, Mariano Rivera, Alberto Gonzalez and Joba Chamberlain were here over the course of the five hours were were allowed in the clubhouse.
Joba just spoke to us. He said he has no real preference to start or relieve next season. Unlike the rest of his teammates, he had no words of support for Joe Torre.
“It’s part of the game,” he said. “It’s not my decision to make.”
So that is that. Back with more later if anything changes. But it doesn’t seem that any news on Torre’s status will be coming down today.
It would be callous if the Yankees let this drag on more than another day or two.
