Kennedy 3.0?

New, comments

The New York Daily News is reporting that Ian Kennedy may be recalled from SWB. However, Peter Abraham is reporting that the Yankees have already beckoned Chris Britton to Texas.

Abraham is right in saying the Yankees tend to break bad news in small doses. But there's no question Joba is done for at least one start.

I know IPK has been terribly weak in his previous '08 incarnations, but if Joba is down for several weeks, it presents the perfect opportunity for IPK to get himself out of Girardi's doghouse and into the mix of starters. I'm hoping they give him a chance--certainly over Glass Carl.

During his latest stint in Scranton, Kennedy has gone 4-2 with a 2.14 ERA, including a 3-0 mark and 1.33 ERA in his last four starts. He deserves another shot.
