I haven't been listening to NY Radio much the past day or so, but do we think this is something that's going to cause him to miss time or are we still speculating wildly at this point??
I can't see anything yet. Maybe that weird 1 out appearance vs DET where Grandy pwned him has put him off his groove a little. Nothing looks irregular from the box score.

I wish people would stop thinking that Joba will automatically go into the bullpen this early. I had to listen to a whole game of commentary about it from Rick Suttcliffe. "If he doesn't pitch 95, into the pen with him stat!"
Joba looked really impressive AS A STARTER vs DET. End of story.
BTW Phil Coke got the 8th in the Angels game with the score tied. Seeing how Veras and Edwar have been craptacular and Melancon is brand new, I'd say Coke is the current next in line RP.
