Too much is made about athletes having a game-face, or acting in a specific manner when they lose.  Still, Ian Kennedy's lack of awareness is troubling.  Remember when Scott Proctor burned his glove after a bad outing?  Maybe he can swing by Anahiem while the Yanks are in town and torch Kennedy's uniform.

It seems to me like an act. Either that or he's a total douche. One of the two.

"total douche" makes me wonder about the possibility of "partial douches"

LOL. Yeah, partial douche. That's one you rarely hear.

You can be kind of a douche, pretty much a douche, or a total douche.

I like that Google placed an ad for a toaster oven in this post. Ian Kennedy's glove a virtual frozen pizza.

Randy Johnson was probably a partial douche. Kevin Brown was a total douche.

Alex, I'm surprised that you have taken this position on Kennedy.

I simply don't understand why he is required to shave his head, wail and nash his teeth as proof to the media and fans that he is aware that he has had bad outing. Clearly, it isn't in his personality so why persecute him. It is like the same crap that people did to Eli last year. All because Eli wasn't rah, rah and threatening to slit his throat when he played badly.

I'm worried that the impatient NY media and fans will pressure the Yankees to trade Kennedy before they are sure that he isn't going to learn his craft with his limited stuff. In other words, people need to climb the hell off his back.

9 i actually want IPK to pitch great down the stretch ... then we could trade him for something useful, like a CF who gets more than 1 hit a week ...

9 No, the time to trade him has passed.

But I object to the idea that you can't trade any prospect until he's proven he'll never be good. Frankly, a kid with limited stuff who might or might not learn his craft someday is someone they should have tried to trade when his value was high.

11 Problem is, given the state of yankee pitching, they can't just give away arms
