I've been incommunicado
for a few days now, all tied up with some personal Yankees Chick affairs, and I must say I have learned a valuable lesson from these couple days: if one does not check the myriad media outlets for 72 hours, when he or she returns to Internet-ville to read all the baseball news, there will be a hell of a lot to catch up on.
I'll be in blogging overdrive for the next little while to catch you all up on my worthless opinions on all the matters at hand (Santanamania, Tigers scoring with Dontrelle and Cabrera, etc etc), but let's start with a little virtual pat on the back for our dear Jobamania. ESPN Magazine featured Joba as their "NEXT" athlete in their December 17th issue - because of his obvious raw talent, already proven MLB capability (do not ever forget that 0.38 ERA and 0.750 WHIP
in 24 innings last season...), and good work ethic. It's a funny little article featuring some heartwarming stories about his Lifetime Movie-worthy childhood (goooooo Harlan!) and some quality text-messaging.
Enjoy the article here: Joba is NEXT!
More to come tomorrow... and the next day... and the next... Basically, you can't get rid of me. Unless you just don't come to the site. I guess that would work.
