Yanks win, Kennedy coming up

More on tonight's game later.

Ian Kennedy was announced as Saturday's starter against Tampa Bay. Kennedy was selected in the first round of the 2006 draft, and has put up stellar numbers in his first professional year: 146.1 ip, 1.91 era, 91 h, 50 bb, 163 k. He does, however, have a slightly scary groundout-to-flyout ratio of .88. If there's any weakness to his game, it will be the HR.

So on back to back days (Friday and Saturday), the Yanks will send to the hill a 21 (Hughes) and 22-year-old. Who'd have thunk it at the beginning of the year?

PS: Fucking blackout rules will prevent me from watching Saturday's game, so I'll have to wait until archives it.
