Joba Chamberlain is being pretty choosy

Ken Rosenthal reports that Joba Chamberlain “has rejected multiple offers from teams he did not want to join.” Which, while he was decent enough in lower leverage situations last year, is somewhat surprising considering he’s, you know, Joba Chamberlain.

But then again, people always seem to value relief pitching in the offseason and at the deadline. When the rubber hits the road and relievers give us heartburn we tend to wonder why on Earth so-and-so is here — and Chamberlain has been that so-and-so a few times — but such is life.
