Joba is helping more in the setup role than he is as the 3rd or 4th starter. FACT.
Eckersley was a starter too. So was Kerry Wood, John Smoltz...
Your a fucking IDIOT. Seriously, you have absolutely no fucking clue about baseball.
You shouldnt be allowed to watch it.
Because those teams NEEDED a Set-up or Closer, Yankees don't NEED Joba in that spot because they already have their future SU/CL in Bruney and Mark Melancon ( and Mo still has a 2-3 years left in him)
Pettitte is probably gone next year and Hughes is unproven.
We need Joba as a starter in the long run rather than a reliever.
Have you even read anything I've said or as soon as I mention Joba being a starter you flip a shit?
