10/19/2008 11:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joba ChamberlainThe Yankees didn't even make it to the post season, but that didn't stop one of their star pitchers from losing anyway.

Joba Chamberlain was arrested for DUI at around 1 AM on Saturday morning after being pulled over for speeding near his hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska. The Yank's pitcher allegedly had an open container of booze in the car.

Joba was booked for DUI, speeding and having an open container in his car -- he will be formally charged on Monday.

Chamberlain has since apologized for his "error in judgment."

#1- No way are you a Yankees fan. No real Yankees fan would want Joba gone. He's the future. Too bad he wasn't DUIing in Boston.

There is no apostrophe in Yankees and no one in their right mind wants him gone. He made a stupid move and he will not forget it but he is not being traded-ever.

Just another former Nebraska sports figure in trouble with the law. Just happens not to be a football player this time.
