    Here we go again.

    Yes, I know: Why are we even still talking about this guy? At this point, hearing about Phil Hughes beating Ian Kennedy in a game of Backyard Baseball on Hughes’ Wii is bigger Yankees news.

      We? ;)

      Anyway, the link you posted was a Knoxville source, so it’s no surprise that it would be a big deal.

      From TSN;
      “His contract states the Yankees will pay for his college…”

      “What makes Henry’s decision particularly newsworthy is that he is the older brother of 6-6 small forward Xavier Henry, one of the top five players in the 2009 recruiting class.”

      - and -

      “Calipari coached Carl Henry, C.J.’s father, when Carl played for Kansas in the mid-1980s.”

      Doesn’t appear that this will impact his Yankees career, as he plans on playing in the spring when he’s done with school. And the Yanks are paying, so he may as well go.
