So what the hell are we waiting for?
According to George King III of the New York Post HERE, "Young appeals to the Yankees because he would provide a right-handed bat to play first, isn’t owed money beyond this season when he is making $16 million, of which Texas is paying $10 million, and isn’t opposed to playing for the Yankees. "
But there is more... have the Phillies soured on Joba Chamberlain? King continues: "As for what the Phillies are looking for, their recent reports on Joba Chamberlain aren’t good. They have questions about what is perceived as the reliever’s immaturity."
It all goes back to what my dad taught me a long time ago about reputation. I wrote about it in BREAKING DOWN ALEX RODRIGUEZ & REPUTATION... “You can be a champion all your life, but
you miss 1 commitment, you lose trust in 1 person… and the rest of your life,
Look ,there is no question we've found a match with the Phillies... the big question is, can Joba prove to the Phillies that he's not only a great reliever in his upcoming appearances leading up to the All-Star break, AND, prove he can be a leader that has grown up... or will we just have to find another combination to make this whole thing work?
