I don't know how this slipped through the cracks of my baseball reading, but Jobamania was arrested on suspicion of DUI this week! Scandal!
Not that surprising, though... how many 20-somethings show their stupidity by driving drunk? I can think of several off the top of my head - and that's just the ones related to me. Common or not, it's despicable behavior and I hope our dear boy learned his lesson. Girardi thinks he has:
“I have spoken to Joba and he made it very clear to me that he made a mistake. We certainly don’t condone his actions, but he is part of the Yankees family and I believe he learned a valuable lesson which he can grow from.”
Where's our statement from the man himself? I always like the mea culpas.
Now that he's been publicly outed as an idiot, let's hope he's returned to more wholesome activities:
PS: Pro-tip, Joba... if you're going to drive drunk, at least be smart enough to leave the open containers
out of the car.
