Joba Chamberlain and David Robertson are always game for a great interview. The two of them sit down with Kim Jones before the Subway Series (click the image below to watch).

In the interview, both relievers talk about their experiences playing when they were younger, what it was like to NOT pitch in that 15-inning game and Robertson's new reputation as the "Houdini" of the Yankees' pen. Lots of lightheardedness awaits!

“Oh,” he said, laughing. “It’s fine.”

There is a red spot –- not a bruise, not a big mark, but a spot -– on his left forearm, courtesy of Eric Chavez. It’s not painful, Phil said, and it’s not a factor moving forward. It is, simply, a reminder of how his no-hitter didn’t happen.

Maybe that part is painful.

As someone –- don’t remember who or I’d give credit -– was saying earlier, Hughes was more dominant in his no-hit bid than CC was against the Rays. It wasn’t like there
