“It’s the first bad outing I’ve had in a long time. I’m not going to look much into it. I felt like I made some good pitches. Yeah, I got the leadoff hitter on quite a bit, but got out of it in the second inning. I’m not too upset about it. . . . Even on their singles, like, what, ground balls? So, that’s not a big deal.”
“A bunch of singles and three doubles or so. I’m just not real upset about it. I’m just going to move on. I’ve already done that.”
Well, now we know why the Yankees were so slow to call up Kennedy – despite the fact that he was beating up on weak Triple-A hitters. When you hear comments like these, it’s clear that he’s a horse’s patootie in terms of his attitude.
If I’m the Yankees, and I’m hearing this, I send him right back down to the minors – now.
