Cashman on spot with Joba Rules
September, 24, 2007
In the New York Post today, Joel Sherman cannily observes that the Joba Rules "morphed closer toward the Joba Suggestions yesterday. However, if they do not evolve further for the playoffs to allow the righty to work whenever needed, they just might unleash the Chamberlain Conflict within the Yankees' organization."
After Joba Chamberlain was deployed in yet another new fashion, with just one day off after a two-inning stint and to register a save, Mike Mussina strongly stated that the fireballing righty must be allowed to pitch daily in October. "When you put on a uniform in the postseason, you're available every day," Mussina said. "That's just simply the way it is."
