  1. Looks like Hank is going to a bigger pain in the a#$ than George if that's possible.

    From the NY Times:
    In an interview with The New York Times conducted late Sunday, Steinbrenner said that the Yankees needed Chamberlain in their rotation now.

    "I want him as a starter and so does everyone else, including him, and that is what we are working toward and we need him there now," Steinbrenner told the newspaper. "There is no question about it, you don't have a guy with a 100-mile-per-hour fastball and keep him as a setup guy. You just don't do that. You have to be an idiot to do that."

    Team GM response:
    Cashman responded to Steinbrenner's earlier comments, telling Newsday that no changes are in store for the time being.

    "Joba's staying in the bullpen right now," Cashman said. "That's where we're at. [Putting him in the rotation is] not something that's going to happen here early on, and [Hank] knows that. We've talked about it. I don't know what set him off."
