Yanks’ prospects sweep minor league pitching awards

By

Drumroll please…

Ian Patrick Kennedy-Jaskowiak was named Minor League Pitcher of the Year, edging out the Twins’ Kevin Slowey, who was runner-up for the second straight year. I have to say, I find this especially gratifying since I spent countless hours (okay fine, countless minutes) last year rebutting emails proclaiming how bad of a pick IPK-J was.

Edwar Ramirez took home Minor League Reliever of the Year honors, just a year removed from eating peanut butter & jelly sandwiches after his Indy ball games. You know the numbers, but they’re so sick I’ll repeat’em anyway: 56.2 IP, 26 H, 102 K. Crazy.

Congrats gents, now go win the World Series. (kidding)

    I’m glad the yankees don’t have names on their jerseys– the clubhouse guys would have their hands full

    How come the article still refers to IPK-J by his “maiden name”?

    ESPN just asked Bill Plashke if Arod would be a good fit for the dodgers or angels

      Buster Olney has that answer and I think he’d say that yes, A-Rod would be a good fit for either the Dodgers or the Angels. Or every other team in the damn sport. Morons.
