Hopeful Sign: Youkilis Disses Joba The Mutt

N.Y. Post: Charles Wenzelberg
In what we can only hope is a harbinger of things to come, Joba Chamberlain has let it be known that new teammate and former target Kevin Youkilis has not responded to his voice mails from earlier in the winter. Isn't that special? Maybe Kevin harbors some ill will toward The Mutt for his head-hunting tactics of the past. You think? Nothing like a little bad blood running between the pinstripes. Chamberlain led the American League in hit batsmen in 2009, but has tailed off since—hitting only two in 20 2/3 innings all of last year. His WHIP in 2012 was a career-high 1.548. We wish him nothing but continued success.
