Looks like former Husker Joba Chamberlain will stay in the bullpen for the Yankees when they start their championship series against the Angels on Friday. Manager Joe Girardi will go with a three man rotation. CC Sabathia will start game one on Friday against the Angels.
The Yankess will also go with AJ Burnett and then follow with Andy Pettite for game three in Anaheim. Joba was used in all three games against the Twins going 1.2 innings and not allowing a run. I also thought Joba was best suited for the bullpen and I know with playoffs, Girardi has shortened his rotation, but I would like to see Joba in those late innings next season as well.
The sale of the Chicago Cubs was cleared by a bankruptcy court judge and said the team can go to the family of billionaire Joe Ricketts. The bankruptcy filing made sure the team can’t be hit with claims by Tribune creditors. The Ricketts family could take over the team in a couple of weeks. The rest of the major league owners already approved the $845 million deal.
