Brian Cashman and Hank Steinbrenner are on the same page when it comes to Joba Chamberlain. Really, they are. Seriously. Everything is fine.
This story perfectly illustrates the difference between covering the Yankees and the Mets. When I covered the Mets (circa Art Howe), every off day was a challenge. You’d have to work to find some sort of feature-type story. So you’d be left with “Joe McEwing: What a Guy” or “Young Reyes Sure is Fast.”
With the Yankees, something always happens. The team has its first day off in three weeks and Hank Steinbrenner starts grousing. I can almost guarantee you that something will happen right around May 5, when they’re off again. It’s a beautiful thing if you’re a beat writer.
Anyway, I am off to Chicago. Check back later for updates.
