Congratulations! It’s Saturday morning, which means that most of you have gotten through a very tough week of work. To reward you, here is another Joke of the Week. Please feel free to “laugh out loud” or even chuckle to yourself at any of these mockeries.

Note: The following is NOT based on fact. If in any case these jokes become real headlines, you have the right to consider me psychic.

Yankee pitchers and catchers officially reported to camp on February 14th. Many pitchers decided to arrive early to get a head start on their workouts, including a heavier Joba Chamberlain. Yes, Joba WAS big to begin with. Listed at 230 lbs during the 2010 season, Joba is currently carrying an extra 15-20 lbs more. The following is a Q&A session that took place between Joba and New York State of Sports regarding his recent weight gain:

New York State of Sports: Would you say that the extra weight you have put on will hurt your chances at a roster spot this season?

Joba Chamberlain: People think that I am battling for a role in the ‘pen this year, but I don’t see it that way. In my opinion, the force is with me more than ever now. The few extra pounds only make me a stronger pitcher.

NYSOS: The organization has explored your development in both the starting rotation and the bullpen. In the back of your mind, do you still feel you can contribute as a starter?

JC: You know, I want to do what’s best for the team. If I put them in a better position to win in a relief role, that is where I want to be.

NYSOS: Keeping focus on the starting rotation, do you feel Burnett has what it takes to bounce back after a down season?

JC: I think AJ34 is a competitor. He’s been around the league for a while to understand what it takes to succeed. It’s also helpful to have his best friend CC52 by his side for support.

NYSOS: If the Yankees decide to trade you, do you have any preferences on the team?

JC: Well, I wouldn’t have a say in the matter. But if I had a choice, I would like to move to the National League. It is the more pitcher friendly league. For some reason, the Houston Astros seem really appealing…

NYSOS: What do you think of the new additions to the Yankee ‘pen?

JC: Some nice acquisitions. I don’t quite understand the Rafael Soriano signing…they already got me. Teammates are saying that Pedro Feliciano eerily resembles former New York Governor David Paterson.

NYSOS: It’s funny you should mention look-alikes. Some of those same teammates have told me that you are looking more and more like Jabba the Hut these days.

JC: No comment…
