Ian Kennedy had to suck up his pride when the Yankees decided a trip back to AAA for some extra seasoning was in order, but rather than dwell on his early season failures and subsequent demotion he is taking the opportunity to show the Yanks a thing or two. His first outing
was good enough to let us all breathe a sigh of relief, proving he IS that talented kid we all saw last year and who scouts deemed "untradable" - and he knows it:
I’m trying to say it humbly, but it doesn’t matter what I say, it’s going to come out cocky. You just know. I woke up today and told my wife, ‘I just have a feeling I’m going to make these guys look stupid.’
I don't know if his performance made the Yanks feel "stupid" for sending him down necessarily, but it certainly allowed them to breathe a sigh of relief. I must say that I appreciate I-Ken's confidence and can-do attitude - let's just hope his first start back with the Yanks whenever that should be will be good enough to illicit another Best Quote Ever from the dear boy.
