What’s first?

3 03 2008

I have the prizes for the next 2 contests. One is an Ian Kennedy signed hat. The other is a game used Justin Chamberlain signed hat. Which should I use first?

That’s tough one…………. Let’s go for Ian since the letter “I” comes before “J” in the alphabet. Stupid I know, but I would have no idea how else to decide.

Maybe flip a coin? Since Joba’s is game used, if it stinks, maybe you would want to get rid of it quicker??

Hey Phil! Just want to say you are awesome. I wish you and the Yankees great success this year. I say you use the Chamberlain Hat first but it doesn’t matter because both are great items.

Well – since you did say Ian can take Justin in a cage fight (since Ian is scrappier and quicker), I’d go with IanπŸ™‚

3 03 2008

IPK– why not?

I would say start with Ian’s contribution…

Plus Joba got all the PR on the special addition of Baseball Tonight yesterday from Disney… Give some love to Ian…

Doesn’t matter! We’re just happy you’re doing this.

Go with Ian, he is married now and needs all the mental confidence he can get… Just Kidding.

3 03 2008

Joba is a favorite on our board, so I am going to have to go with his.

3 03 2008
mabbryfl30

Both are great items and you can use both to swat midgies. Flip of the coin predicts the Chamberlain hat (probably bigger). Thanks, have a good day Phil.

3 03 2008
riverwolf2005

Either one would be AWESOME!! This IS your show Phil. I am sure nobody would be disappointed with either. I know I wouldn’t!

pdriggs2029

Depends what the contest is and which one I have a better chance of winning!! haha!

3 03 2008
willlaux

I think u gotta go age before beauty. In that case it would be Ian. Quite frankly tho i’d just as well be happy with a pair of Ohlendorf’s soxs.

3 03 2008

Rock, paper, scissors…best 3 out of 5. The only way to settle things.

Phil, I sent you an e-mail, as I am sure MANY do, about some items to give you to use as prizes amongst other things

3 03 2008
chosen1s65

Both are awesome prizes….I dont think you can go wrong with either one….so I would probly flip a coin…

3 03 2008

Get rid of Joba’s hat first. It attracts flies.

Does Joba still sign Justin in an autograph?

3 03 2008
Tim

Why don’t you just give me Joba’s hat and that will solve that issue!πŸ™‚

Joba first.

You rock Phil…very cool prizes! Tough one. Hmmm…let’s see…Ian has 3 letters, Joba has 4. Go with Ian’s first.

3 03 2008

Does Joba’s hat have bug spray on it?

3 03 2008
nyy4life

I go for IPK…..this other guy, Joba, might not be so good since he has yet to prove he can do anything but blow people away in the 7tha nd 8th innings! lol

3 03 2008
manimal529

Do you call him justin for real or do you call him that just to annoy him? The order doesn’t matter to me.

3 03 2008

Either one Phil…What your doing for us is beyond generous

3 03 2008

The Joba hat, for sure.

And this blog is great; what a service to the fans!

3 03 2008
arodmariano4213

I say you should ask both Ian and Joba the contest question and which ever one of them gets it right their hat goes first.

3 03 2008

Both are awesome..

Ok, wow…I read that too fast and thought it said “Justin Christian..” thought that would’ve been kind of random..lol

Do you usually call him Justin? πŸ˜€

3 03 2008
mary21nyc

By the way Phil, the New York Times Sports Magazine (came out in yesterday’s Sunday paper) has a cover article on the Yanks. It’s about the new managment under Steinbrenner’s sons and they mention and show photos of both you and Joba. But you probably know that already…especially since you’re agent’s in town!

3 03 2008
thehugeunit

Let Ian go first and Joba “close” it out.

3 03 2008
26yanksrule27

It doesn’t really matter, both are great.

That’d be really funny if you call Joba by Justin.

3 03 2008

Either is awesome. Thanks Phil!!!

yankeephanatic

It doesn’t matter which one you choose first because they’re both amazing, but if I had to pick I would say Joba.

3 03 2008
hughesowns96

flip a coin, i dont care both players are gr8 along with u phil, good luck with your decision.

3 03 2008
vtyankeesfan

Either one would make me extremely happy, so I won’t complain regardless of which one is up first….I also likely will not win, so that makes it all the less impactful of a decision!

3 03 2008
lokomo62

the Joba hat phil, both are great prizes tho

3 03 2008

go with Kennedy….. even though Joba is the man.

Well, they aren’t you but I guess they’ll be ok, LOL. You are all great and you can’t go wrong.

3 03 2008
yanks4ever13

it depends on if I win or not. If I win the first one, then Joba’s hat. if I don’t, then use Ian’s first. As much as I love the both of them, I love Joba a little more.πŸ™‚

3 03 2008
whozat

Is it signed “Justin” or “Joba”?

If the former, do that one first. If the latter, use Ian’s first.

3 03 2008
dayanks65

Seriously the fact that you called him Justin, you need him to sign it Justin Chamberlain.

I met his father at the stadium last year, what a nice man. Got him to auto a Joba shirt “Joba rules the Sox – Harlan – Joba’s Dad” Classic like I wouldn’t remember who Harlan was. I am sure you met him, very good guy.

3 03 2008
mbyankees223

I say do the Joba!

3 03 2008
gehrig818

Thank them both for their contributions to the contest. Thank you too! My sons name is Justin so lets go with Joba first.

3 03 2008

3 03 2008
yanksgal07

Once you mention a contest Phil …the comments come fast and furious…lol.

Anything you deem worthy will be fine with the fans….nice of Ian and Joba to get in the mix.

I caught your interview on Duces Rogers (sp?) last night …as always poised and relaxed. Maybe you should give Hank some lessons on speaking to the press ..haha. He should take that media class along with the players … :o)

Good luck tomorrow …..show ’em what you got !!!!

Go Yankees 2008 !!!!

3 03 2008

love the fact you called him Justin, let’s us know that you guys are tight.

I say Kennedy’s first then Joba’s. Since Ian is smaller.

3 03 2008
painttheblack23

Game used and signed = more valuable.
Go with Joba.

3 03 2008
jerryd1949

Go with Joba ( JUSTIN)

3 03 2008
joelefko

I’d say joba’s hat, provided “game used” doesn’t mean “covered in dead midges”. but i could care less which i got if i won.

3 03 2008
nygurl302

Ian first! seniority rules.

3 03 2008

Just wondering, Phil,

Did you ever watch the English version of “The Office,” starring Ricky Gervais? And if so, were there any parts that you considered equal or superior to the American edition?

3 03 2008
bobbykid

Think you could just flip a coin, because heads we would all win, and tails we would win.

3 03 2008
killaj27

BOTH !

3 03 2008

flip a join, does joba get upset when you call him justin

3 03 2008

Either one is great. Go with Joba first.

3 03 2008

Have IPK & Joba arm wrestle for it!

3 03 2008

I would say Ian Kennedy.

3 03 2008

Either one would be great, but I’m leaning towards Joba.

3 03 2008
jessicayanks

let them play rock paper scissors and see who wins. honestly both are great. so dont matter to me!

3 03 2008

I love that you just called him Justin… I tend to say that too just because it sounds so strange and doesn’t seem to match his personality… gets people confused

dcsmitty76

Hey Phil..just wanted to say I am so happy that you or any other Yankee were traded for Santana. We have waited for years to have some home grown pitchers and now we have the TRINITY of pitchers. What an awesome pitching staff we will have for years to come. There is no doubt in my mind that you are going to be the ACE of this staff and to be fair you will have Joba and Ian close behind you……RED SOX NATION…..haha….they better enjoy it while it lasts because it fall very soon….the shortest lived NATION in the history of the world….GO YANKEES….

11 08 2008
phil34derek2fan

that is hard… i would say…. i don’t know…. pick Justin Christian. Justin is my 4th favorite ball player!!!! Here is a list of my top 5:
Derek Jeter
Phil Hughes
Ian Kennady
Justin Chrisain
Joba

11 08 2008
phil34derek2fan

i meant joba…. i didnt no is hughes meant to say joba chamberlain or justin cristain…. i hope joba wins
