Did he really think conditions would be perfect every time he pitched? Joba needs to shut him mouth, man up, and pitch.
Bugs took over Jacobs Field and had a particular preference for Joba Chamberlain. The rookie right-hander was bothered by the little buggers in his ears, his eyes, all over his hat and neck.
But when Cleveland starter Fausto Carmona took the mound, he never stepped off the rubber. He was tougher than the gnats.
"I think that was my favorite part of the game," Garko said. "Fausto didn't step off the mound, because he's tough. That's what you've got to be here: Tough. Fausto didn't flinch.
"There were guys acting like those were bullets flying around their heads. They're not bullets. They're just bugs. This is the big leagues."
Jeter and A-Rod looked like shadow boxers. Who kills the spiders at home? Mrs. A-Rod? Rodriguez swung at the bugs around his head and missed those, too.
