Off-Season Yankee Schadenfreude

Joba Chamberlain, who the New York Daily News said today has a "wholesome reputation," got nailed in his hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska yesterday by police and was arrested on charges of driving under the influence, speeding and having an open container of alcohol in his vehicle.

He spent the night in a detox center (aka drunk tank). He'll be arraigned on Monday.

Here's more from the Boston Globe.

I also read in the Daily News today that Yankee memorabilia isn't fetching what it used to. At an auction in Manhattan yesterday, the ball that Jose Molina hit in the last game at Yankee Stadium and was the final home run there garnered: nothing. They also received no bids on the first Yankee World Series trophy. A number of other items also sold for far less than the value they were appraised at. And of course, the economy is to blame for it. Here's the story in today's News.
