    Ian Kennedy pitched for the Yankees today, in their exhibition game against the Blue Jays, and he did just fine. In fact, here are the results for the four contests this spring where Ian has pitched, with totals on the last line:

    IP	 H	R	ER	HR     BB	         SO
    2.0	 2	1	1	1	0	 0
    4.0	 2	0	0	0	1	 2
    3.0	 3	2	2	2	2	 5
    4.3	 6	1	1	0	0	 4
    
    11.3	13	4	4	3	3	11

    You really can’t ask for anything more than that, can you?

    And, some people want to know why I’m such a Kennedy fanboy

    And, in the same game, Joba Chamberlain did what he’s supposed to do with the likes of Ryan Patterson, Sean Shofit and Anthony Hatch. Set ‘em up and sit ‘em down.

    Back to Kennedy…at this point, he’s got to be the #4 man in the rotation, no? Heck, if it were up to me, I’d make him #3 in the rotation – ahead of both Mussina and Hughes.

      Kennedy’s process scares the heck out of me, but his results are awesome.

      He had a really good curveball today and somehow he continues to strike guys out.

      “somehow he continues to strike guys out.”

      Are you serious? The guy has great command of 4 pitches and can throw them for strikes whenever he wants. Of course he’s going to strike guys out.
