Let Joba hear it Friday

It's Time to Throw Something Into Chamberlain's Head...
Let Justin Hear It at Fenway Friday Night

"My niece was unable to pronounce Justin, so she'd call me that [Joba]. Nobody knew my real name until I graduated from high school, when my dad put it in the yearbook. Now there's nothing that could make me switch back. It'll never happen. No, sir." -- Justin Chamberlain, ESPN The Magazine, 7.28.08

"He [Chamberlain] has great command until Youk gets in there.” -- Terry Francona last July

And Don't Forget Mr. Leigh Teixeira Tomorrow Night ...
Remember: He Strung Boston Along For Too Long

"I think I always had the Yankees in my sights... The other teams went out and told everybody their offers, and told everybody they're gonna talk to me, that they've made made this call, and they made that trip, and they did that... And I think in the end, it probably worked against them a little bit, because everyone thought the Red Sox were [my] No. 1, but in reality, the Yankees were gonna be the team, like I said all along... " -- Mr. Leigh to WFAN, 3.28.09
