Hank excited about Joba, optimistic about season

As we all know, Joba Chamberlain makes his much-anticipated starting debut tonight.

Pete Caldera has Hank Steinbrenner's reaction to this event, as well as thoughts on the rest of the season.

"This is about what Joba can do for us over the next 10 years. That's what we're going to look at in a lot of way, with the new dynasty, hopefully, we can build.''

And he's buying into tonight's hype. "I know the media live day by day,'' Steinbrenner said of events such as these. "That's not my problem and that's not Brian's (Cashman) problem. That's your guys (media's) problem.

"We just have to build what the Yankees should be for now...and also for the future,'' Hank said. "I really think we'll still go on a tear.''
I really don't get what the big deal is. Chamberlain will be out of the game by the fifth inning at the latest, and it will take two or more starts like these to finally build up his necessary arm strength.

Tonight will only be a tease of what the future could hold.

Unless he just strikes everyone out on 3 pitches.


Do it.
