Struggling New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain says that he would join the fans in the Yankee Stadium in booing him, if he was part of the crowd.
The harsh assessment comes after a series of poor performances from the 27-year-old, and a 8-5 defeat at the hands of Texas, in which he allowed a two-run homer.
“I would boo me, too,” Chamberlain told NJ.com. “I’m terrible right now, there’s no getting around it. You come and spend money, you want to see somebody do their job.”
“Obviously, I know I suck right now.”
His earned run average has increased to 6.38 because of recent matches and Yankees manager Joe Girardi has admitted that it is important that they get Chamberlain back to his best as soon as possible.
“Somehow, we have to get him going,” Girardi said. “To me, his stuff is too good not to help us. Right now, he’s making mistakes.”
The Yankees currently lie in 5th position in the table and face Texas later today.
