Last night we had two pitcher making important scheduled starts, one Joba Chamberlain of the Yankees and two Pedro Martinez of the Mets. Joba making his major league debut as a starter and Pedro coming back from the DL.

Joba didn't fair so well during his start only lasting 2.1 innings while walking 4 and striking out 3. Joba was pulled after pitching 62 pitches because he was on a pitch limit. Owners who have Job shouldn't be too impressed with the results but I wouldn't worry about it right now since he has the raw talent which comes with a devastating 100MPH fastball which topped out at 101MPH last night on the stadium radar. For the immediate future, don't worry about Joba.

Pedro had a great return to the mound pitching 6 innings striking out 3 and allowing 3ER's for the victory. If Pedro is still on the wire, go out and grab him. His ability to strike people out may be gone but his smartness on the mound will help him overcome the loss of velocity. As long as he can stay healthy Pedro is worth a spot on all rosters.
