Yankees Not Interested In Joba Chamberlain Reunion

The Yankees are not one of the twelve or so teams discussing whether or not to bring Joba Chamberlain into their bullpen for the 2014 season. The Yankees have seemingly grown tired of Joba's antics and home run givings and a reunion seems extremely unlikely at this point. Any guy can throw in the mid to upper 90's but if you do not have the control, the secondary pitches, the mindset, or the confidence to go with it then it's pretty useless as the Yankees learned the hard way the last two seasons.

Joba is 28 years old and is coming off of a season in which he posted a 4.93 ERA and 5.64 FIP in 42 innings including a hard to watch 6.53 FIP in the second half. The guy throws hard and has done it on the big stage before so he is going to get a job somewhere no doubt with the "change of scenery" and "low risk high reward" moniker attached to him.
