Yankees' Joba Chamberlain understands 'Linsanity'


TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Joba Chamberlain is one person who can truly appreciate "Linsanity."

Chamberlain inspired the "Joba Rules," which became a New York obsession when the pitcher went 2-0 with a 0.38 ERA in 19 relief appearances after joining the Yankees in August 2007.

Now Chamberlain is soaking in the exploits of Jeremy Lin, the New York Knicks' sudden star.

Chamberlain says "it's been fun to watch." He's in Florida rehabbing from elbow ligament replacement surgery.
