Check out this quote from Ian Kennedy last night:
â€œIâ€™m trying to say it humbly, but it doesnâ€™t matter what I say, itâ€™s going to come out cocky. You just know. I woke up today and told my wife, ‘I just have a feeling Iâ€™m going to make these guys look stupid.’ â€
That he did. One hit over 7.1 innings and eight strikeouts. Now moving down the Charlotte Knights is not the same as the Detroit Tigers, but at least Kennedy seems to have his mojo back. He was that guy we saw last year.
Lots more good stuff from Kennedy at the invaluable Chad Jennings Scranton blog.
The pressure is on Kei Igawa now. If he doesn’t pitch well on Friday, the Yankees have options. Kennedy will likely pitch again on Sunday.
