Well, now that he's lost two games this year, and there were no bugs, Yank fans can't use that excuse anymore about last years playoff lose to Cleveland. I hope the Yanks do what most of their fans want...move JoBug to the rotation....if they do that, by the end of the year, the JoBug legacy that the Yank fans have already created will be long gone.

Oh well, nobody'e perfect. Even the great Mariano blows one every now & then. Chamberlain didn't do the Joba for Mr Pettitte who deserved a better fate. The midges are not at fault this go around. I don't think they're in the Harlem River.

Joba is a very good pitcher with some great stuff, but it is just a matter of time before hitters start to catch on. Let the other teams see him a few more times, and see what happens!

He's the same as any other good pitcher after batters have seen him a few times.He's going to get hit. Yesterday he mixed other pitches in along with the classic reliever fast ball/slow ball. Looks like they're getting him ready to start. Yankees beat by their own game...the 314ft. home run.

He had two strikes on those bums and then started nibbling like Ian Kennedy -- just blow it by them, you're not Mr. Finesse.

Any plans to retire his number yet?
