According to reports published on and in an upcoming episode of "Center Stage" (a YES Network Production) Yankees catcher Jorge Posada believes he's got the answer to the eternal Joba question:

Keep him locked in the pen.

Posada believes that keeping Joba in the rotation will only lead to future arm injuries (something Posada has become quite the expert on) and would ruin his career.

As posted on, Posada states:

"I think if you start him and he pitches 200 innings in one year, you're going to lose him. He's going to get hurt. I don't see him as a starter,"

and then

"I see him as a reliever. I think his body is made up for a reliever," Posada said.
