Joba still intends to pitch in 2012

    I agree one-hundred percent. Really rooting for him.

    How was he not some kind of phenom in 2007?

    He blew through all levels of the minors, heater peak at 100, owned just about every batter he faced and the FO came up with a set of rules to keep Torre from ruining another arm.

    Injuries, conditioning, maturity, over use of his slider and jerking him around (SP-8I RP-SP-6or7I RP) led to him being the best 6th or 7th inning guy on the planet.

    • Stephen Strasburg was a phenom. Being really really good for a short period of (highly structured) time does not make you a phenom.

    Who do you think Joba bumps when he gets back? Garcia?
