Joba Chamberlain is not in the best shape of his life

UPDATE:  Erik Boland talked to Chamberlain.  Joba says his added weight is muscle, and is the result of adding a home gym this winter.  So there.

11:oo AMCC Sabathia lost 30 pounds. If you believe this tweet from the Post’s Brian Costello a few minutes ago, Joba Chamberlain may have found some of them:

Joba looks like he gained some weight.

Not cool for a guy who is about to embark on a season that could make or break his career.

Anyway, know what would be funny?  If the ballplayers took to Twitter and commented on the writers’ weight. “Looks like Calcaterra developed an allergy to vegetables this winter.”  “Gleeman ain’t in the best shape of his life.”

Of course, that would assume that the players give a rat’s patootie about who we are. Which is not a safe assumption.
