Joba may need surgery
He could be out for the season

Joba Chamberlain is all but certain to miss the rest of this season — and some of 2012 — after further testing Thursday revealed a torn ligament in his right elbow. He has not revealed any symptoms commonly associated with ligament damage, but when asked whether Chamberlain needed reconstructive elbow surgery, Manager Joe Girardi said, “I don’t know how you avoid it.”
Chamberlain underwent dye-contrast magnetic resonance imaging Thursday to determine whether the Yankees’ initial diagnosis — a strained flexor muscle — was complete. Girardi seemed stumped that Chamberlain had sustained such a serious injury without feeling discomfort other than tightness after throwing long toss.
Looks like the Joba rules didn't help...

That's because as a young twenty something you only lightly fistpumped once every few weeks. The JMDFistpumprules kept your elbow clean for a long career of fistpumps.

Of course you had a major league pitching staff that year. We have CC and the michelin man.

This is so true, I'm so thankful that I had better coaching in my peak years than Joba had.
