K-Man celebrates an unwanted record

Kei Igawa — remember him? — tied the Scranton franchise record for career wins yesterday when he beat the Pawtucket Red Sox. The K-Man has 26 wins with Scranton over the last three season. He tied the record set by Evan Thomas, a former Phillies prospect who won 87 games in the minors from 1996-2006 and never made it to the majors.

“It’s a stepping stone, not a final goal of mine,” Igawa told Chad Jennings of the Times-Tribune.

Meanwhile, the Yankees passed on All-Star Ted Lilly and paid $46 million for Igawa. Yikes.

Meanwhile, Chad reports that the International League could move home games out of Scranton if the field drainage issues cannot be solved. The Yankees sent Stadium groundskeeper Dan Cunningham to check the situation out.
