It definitely hurts their bullpen depth, but that's an odd reaction by Sherman, as they still have tons of SPs, nothing has changed there.

It happened to a kid on an opposing basketball team of mine when he landed on a teammate's ankle. I turned my head and ran away.

This situation is way funnier, though.

Not this season, that's for sure. Given his already corpulent tendencies, this could be it for him.

Sure, it could. It won't absolutely end it, Dravecky-style, but it could impact his mechanics to such a degree that he never really makes it back, especially when you consider that he's already missed an entire year and now it will be two.

I see that Joba Chamberlain voodoo doll we gave to Kevin Youkilis for Hanukkah a couple years ago is still working.

Was Joba actually playing on the trampoline?

Francesa was reading something just now about Joba. The doctors were actually afraid for his life because he lost so much blood. The article he was reading said that it would be 3 months before he can even put weight on it.

So it seems the odds of him being offered arbitration in 7 months are pretty much nil.

This is very serious. He is going to have a long hard recovery. I would not wish this on anyone.

"This makes it not only a career-threatening injury, but a limb-threatening injury. There is a small percentage of people who end up with an amputation. There are a small percentage of people, if the skin envelope doesn't heal, they are susceptible to infection and that can lead to amputation. These days, that's less likely to happen because we have good antibiotics."

Maybe in 20 years, Joba Chamberlain surgery will become a well known medical procedure that is used to help save the careers of hundreds of injured Cirque du Soleil performers.

In all seriousness though, I hope he loses the foot. Fuck that guy.

Is there any doubt that "playing with his son on a trampoline" is actually "selfishly hogging the trampoline as his kid pleaded with him to share it?"

He better be able to put a LOT of weight on it when he does. He might be 4 bills after three months of sitting around pitying himself.

The Yankees bullpen has had a rough season off the field. The good news for the Yankees is Roberston "seems" to be ok.

I guess nerve damage and damage to blood vessels could make this career threatening, As someone mentioned upthread, Joba really has to be careful not to pack on the pounds during the time before he can put weight on the foot and start rehab. The ankles probably never going to be 100%, but if he keeps his weight under control he has a chance to comeback.

I found this rather sobering

According Dr. Steven Weinfeld, the Chief of the Foot and Ankle Service and Associate Professor or Orthopedic Surgery at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, there is chance unfortunately: "The dislocation means the ankle bone is forced out of its socket by some sort of injury and 'open' means the skin is ripped open, like with what Joe Theismann had with his injury." Weinfeld added ominously, "This makes it not only a career-threatening injury, but a limb-threatening injury. There is a small percentage of people who end up with an amputation."

On April 20th, Wally needs to ditch the four wheeler and take to the field on a Rascal sporting a Joba jersey. Never been a Wally fan or fan of mascots in general, but THAT just might change my thinking.

The overlap of some medical terms ofttimes confuses me, but that sounds like a compound fracture rather than a dislocation. Is compound dislocation a term?

So, the news sounds a lot better today. Joba is out of the hospital tomorrow (and even tonight is just precautionary), and has no microfractures or infections.

Yup. Then he's flying up to Canada to see ARod's "platelet" doctor. Should be ready to pitch Wednesday.

But seriously it sounds like the injury wasn't as bad as initially reported. The "life threatening" claim came from Joba's father and was disputed by his agent today.

http://www.nypost.co...m2Z3e2Wtt9Izf8K

Though Chamberlain lost a considerable amount of blood and paramedics were called to the scene, both a Yankees source and the pitcher’s agent denied that his life was ever in danger.


“There was no life-threatening loss of blood,” Jim Murray, Chamberlain’s agent, said.

Chamberlain’s father, Harlan, told The Post reports that his son’s life was in danger were untrue.

Infections can take awhile to develop but they probably feel confdent that whatever antibiotic they are giving him will knock down any bugs. If there is resistance to the antibiotic, and hospitals are a great place to pick up MRSA, infection will show a week or more later.

Obviously, Joba dodged a bullet with no fracture or ligament damage, thats pretty rare if true (might want to get it looked at in NY).
