Yankees vs. Royals @ Kauffman Stadium

Recommended Posts

Ian Kennedy yielded one run in six innings and struck out 11 for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.

Kennedy has dominated in the minors for over 2 years now, he can still be a good pitcher, but it probably wont be for the Yankees.

Great start for Sabathia today. Very encouraging after the last day.

I like talking to myself.

From what I've seen he has, my stream did cut off there for a while though so I've missed some.

Wow he's locating his fastballs beautifully. That sequence against Crisp was good.

Swisher is a beast. He is on fire. Joe needs to get him in the lineup everyday.

Cody Ransom absolutely sucks @ 3rd base.

CC has been great. This is what we were expecting.

I think we should see what Pena can do...

CC had a great night, albeit against the ROYALS. Still, it's good to see him pull it together. Usually he has a very slow start.

And SWISH! Kid's been en fuego. Lets get this guy in the lineup on a regular basis. I would even consider benching Matsui for a while to get Swish a few at bats early on.

Ransom is worthless. He doesnt hit EVER and he can't field. He's a liability. Get rid of him!

That's frustrating... Joba worked out of trouble, but the defense lets him down.

You guys have nothing to worry about. After Meche is done (which looks to happen in the next couple of minutes), KC will just bring in Farnsworth to blow the game.

Hopefully the Yankees pen can get 3 innings of shut out ball.

Bruney in 7th (vs. 2 RH hitters)

Coke or Marte in 8th (vs. 3 LH hitters)

Rivera in 9th

Hope so I have Joba going on my fantasy squad.

How were the last 2 runs given up? Swisher error?

Shame they didn't or couldn't pinch hit for Melky. Killed a big inning.

BTW has Michael Kay gotten worse this year or what?

Kay always sucked... Cone isn't bad though

Yeah, but amazingly they didn't call it an error.

Bruney look real good that inning, but with 3 tough lefties up (DeJesus, Tehean, and Jacobs) the next inning, I'd go with Coke or Marte in the 8th.
