We already have written about how I motivated Joba Chamberlain and how Joe Girardi didn't know Joba's exact schedule.

Now we have Girardi's reaction to watching Joba throwing on Tuesday.

"He looked great," Girardi said. "He looked really good to me. I thought the ball came out well. I thought mechanically he was very sound. He didn't look tentative at all."

Joba is expected to throw off a mound on Tuesday. He is expected to be in the majors by June, at the earliest.
