What They Said

Ian Kennedy said something after last night’s loss:

“I’m just not real upset about it. I’m just going to move on. I’ve already done that.”

Alex Rodriguez said something else after breaking an 0-15 slump with a solo homer:

“I haven’t been taking it that hard. I just want to go up there and hit the ball hard and have good at-bats. There hasn’t been a lot of that lately, but tonight was better so we’ll see what happens.”

Both players were talking to reporters and had to say something. Kennedy’s words may not have come out perfectly and Rodriguez may not be carrying the team like he did for so much of last season. But they both tried to say the only thing a ballplayer ever can:

“There’s nothing I can do about that (the pitches or the swings), but I’ll be back tomorrow ready to win.”

They had better be ready to win. The Yankees really need this game.

Yes, a win. We need every win we can get from here on out.

Everyone needs to give Kennedy a break here.
