Looks like good news for Joba Chamberlain and his dad right as the Yankees get to town.
“After several difficult days, my father is feeling much better,” Chamberlain said in a statement issued by the team from Baltimore, where the Yankees were to play the Orioles Friday night. “He is still in the critical care unit of the hospital and more tests await him, but he is off the ventilator and breathing on his own. Each day he’s acting more and more like himself, and he’s even giving people grief — myself included — because the hospital doesn’t carry Yankees games on television.”
Here’s the original Roar from 34 post detailing why O’s fans should hope for the best for a player from an otherwise hated division rival.
