Joba Chamberlain gives Danny Worth a pregame massage

via Joba Chamberlain added a new title to his resume, Team Chiropractor, Wednesday when he gave utilityman Danny Worth a massage.  It appears that Chamberlain enjoyed it (A LOT) more than Worth did.  What is the adage, “if you love your job, you will never work a day in your life”?
