Ian Kennedy couldn't make it out of the third inning. Giving up four runs on five hits, walking five and striking out four against the scummy Orioles.
Kennedy is being mentored by Mike Mussina, and not only does his act on the mound look like Mussina, so does his pitching.
After the game, a visibly angry Joe Girardi was asked if Kennedy's problem was a mechanics flaw.
Girardi said "I'm not a mechanics guy, when I send someone out there I expect them to throw strikes."
The manager also added that Kennedy needs to be more aggressive with 2 strikes like he was last year.
He's getting timid, just like Mussina.
Meanwhile back at the ranch....
Kei Igawa is 2-2 with a 2.49 ERA.
Darrell Rasner is 2-0 with a 1.06 ERA.
Heath Phillips is 2-0 with a 1.59 ERA.
Phil Hughes should take note of those stats too.
