You may be wondering how Joba Chamberlain came off the All-Star Break with 2 consecutive victories: 1 against the Tigers and 1 against the A's. Before the break, it just seemed to be no-decision after no-decision. He holds the Major League Record for most No-D's in a season.
Reports say that Joba went home to Oklahoma during the All-Star Break. He didn't even think about baseball. He just spent quality time with his family. He only had a couple of throwing sessions and that's it! Nothing complicated. No pressure. No nothing. Just basic throwing. No Joba rules to worry about.
As a family man with 2 kids, I can relate with how Chamberlain can come back and have success on the mound his first 2 starts back . Joba was grinding it out in the first half. He was working hard with coaches trying to figure things out. This is a lot like a student grinding it out with his schoolwork; grinding it out with his schoolwork, getting pressure from his teachers to do better, getting pressure to keep their GPA up, but oh, when the semester is over, they go home, hang out with family and friend, and just breathe. When the new semester starts, they're fresh minded and ready to go.

There’s been a lot of griping recently over the state of Boston sports, serving (for me) as another ugly reminder of the developing, spoiled and cocksure nature of fans in this area. Let’s take a quick look, shall we?
Despite not ;having played superbly of late, the Celtics stand at 31-16 and hold a five-and-a-half game lead in their division over Toronto. ; ;
The Patriots finished the season at 10-6 (and a perfect 8-0 at home) and lost in the conference semi-finals to Baltimore.
The line between the Red Sox and Yankees is becoming more blurred each year (I know, I know, blasphemous!). But the Sox pay more and more to rob smaller market teams of their best players. Last year they finished 95-67 and, again, made the playoffs.
The Bruins are apparently stinking up then Garden this year but last year made a nice push into the playoffs.

Akadema Pro Kip Leather Series baseball gloves are the glove of choice for those players with great hands, who are not overly concerned how long their glove will last. Pro players and high level college baseball players are going nuts over this series...I see more & more of them each season. Our Kip Leather is harvested in Europe then tanned in Japan. They are 20% lighter, very pliable, easier to break in and have more tensile strength than other competing gloves. I still prefer my Akadema Pro Leather for its extra thickness and cushion... but I also don't have the quick hands I once did... another reason why we give you these choices! All models are built for specific fielding positions. Choose your model at: baseballtips.com
