Chamberlain returns to Nebraska

The Daily News reported today that Joba Chamberlain is headed back to Nebraska to attend to his father Harlan, who has taken ill.

Joe Girardi did not make this information public last night despite knowing about it. While Harlan Chamberlain’s medical condition is certainly a private matter, a player leaving the team is not. It would have been appropriate to inform fans that Chamberlain had left the team for family reasons and leave it at that.

Here’s wishing Mr. Chamberlain well. He has willingly shared his son and his story with the public and enjoyed himself along the way. Hopefully we’ll see him at a game again before too long.
