Don't mess with Joba

After taking Joba Chamberlain deep on Tuesday to give the Indians a 5-3 lead, David Dellucci struck out on a nasty slider to end the eighth inning Thursday afternoon, prompting the pictured reaction.

This was Chamberlain's first appearance since that outing, and, for at least today, he didn't show that it bothered him. He didn't walk anyone and three all but three pitches for strikes. I don't know if anyone was worried after that outing, but Yankee fans can sleep soundly tonight.

While it's obvious that he can't remain perfect forever, Tuesday night's lackluster performance came as a shock to any baseball observer. Chamberlain certainly responded the right way this afternoon.
