Joba Has Called Youkilis To "Clear The Air"
As we all know, and probably loved, Joba Chamberlain has a history of trying to hit Kevin Youkilis with fastballs in his head. To be fair Kevin was a Red Sox at the time and there is the whole rivalry thing and the biggest eruption was way back in 2008 when Joba was suspended for throwing above Youk's head and knocking him to the ground. Joba has been unsuccessful so far in reaching Youk, only getting his voicemail, but it is nice of Joba to be proactive here. No reason to have tension in the clubhouse and on the road and such so I am glad this is being handled internally, not that it should be a huge deal to begin with. Shows some maturity on Joba's part though so kudos to him.
