I still think the Yankees are okay.
Crazy, right? How can a team that lost their top two pitchers, starting catcher, replacement starting catcher, and DH be okay? Well, here's the thing: they are still in striking distance, and they're still a good team.
And with the news that Ian Kennedy's back, they are even better.
Kennedy has killed Triple-A with a 38/13 K/BB rate, a 2.14 ERA, and a .91 WHIP. With Joba out, Kennedy will need to continue that and I think he can. We need him.
We can still look foward to guys like Phil Hughes and Mark Melancon coming up soon; tonight, however, it's all Ian. I'm so excited I actually got MLB.TV to see the game (I'm around Boston on vacation so it's not on TV). I've picked him up in fantasy leagues and even wasted 15 minutes writing this little stub of an article.
