Hank Steinbrenner, son of Yankee owner George Steinbrenner, has made his feelings perfectly clear as to where and when Joba should be pitching; rotation. Here's an excerpt from an article that recently ran on ESPN.com:

We understand why Hank is doing what he's doing. He's trying to make a name for himself, separate himself from Papa Steinbrenner. In doing so, however, Hanky will inevitably continue to draw comparisons to his father.

Vicious cycle continues....

Steinbrenner outspoken about Chamberlain's future place with Yankees

Yankees co-chairman Hank Steinbrenner, like his father George, has never been one to mince words. When it comes to where pitcher Joba Chamberlain should be -- the bullpen or the starting rotation -- the younger Steinbrenner's expectations are crystal clear.

"I want him as a starter and so does everyone else, including him, and that is what we are working toward and we need him there now," Steinbrenner told the New York Times. "There is no question about it, you don't have a guy with a 100-mile-per-hour fastball and keep him as a setup guy. You just don't do that. You have to be an idiot to do that."

Through Sunday's games, the Yankees stand at 10-10 and are closer to the bottom of the AL East than the top. New York is three games behind division-leading Boston and just 1½ games ahead of cellar dweller Tampa Bay.

Steinbrenner also took issue with how the Yankees handled Chamberlain's situation last season, before he was in a position to make changes.

"The mistake was already made last year switching him to the bullpen out of panic or whatever," Steinbrenner told the newspaper. "I had no say in it last year and I wouldn't have allowed it. That was done last year, so now we have to catch up. It has to be done on a schedule so we don't rush him."
