A leading candidate to start Tuesday is righthander Ian Kennedy, 22, the Yankees' first-round pick in the 2006 draft. He picked up his first Triple-A victory for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday with six innings of shutout ball in which he struck out nine. Kennedy has allowed two earned runs in 17 Triple-A innings, striking out 19. He would be pitching on five days' rest. [newsday]
and i may or may not have squealed a little bit, as i will be in the house tuesday and the idea of seeing a second badass baby bomber make his mlb debut is, selfishly, more appealing than poor jeff karstens.
lupe, I would rather pay to watch you pitch than see Karstens.By Rich, at 11:58 PM <$BlogItemControl$>
i feel same as you lupe. i mean, srsly, what else does ian have left to prove? i'd LOVE to see him get the start on tuesday, and sry2say i have much more confidence in him than karstens. all signs point to karstens though, at this point. :\By , at 3:35 AM <$BlogItemControl$>
